Brown Onion Paste

22 May



Yellow Onion 3
Oil 1 tbsp

Method of preparation:

Peel, halve and thinly slice the onions.

Apply oil to sliced onion and spread on a baking sheet in one layer.
Preheat oven to 350 F and bake the onions for about 30 – 50 min until they turn brown.
Alternatively, deep fry the sliced onions until brown.

Once cooled, grind the onions into smooth paste by adding little water.
Store tight and refrigerate for further use.

Notes: Used mainly in gravy dishes. I make this when there are too many onions, but generally don’t grind the browned onions until needed to increase the shelf life.
