Know what onion to choose

There are 3 types of onions-

  1. Red
  2. Yellow
  3. Sweet
  4. White

Each of these onions have different characteristics and flavours, so it is important to choose wisely.

  1. When you need the onions to be raw, it is better to use sweet onions. By the name, it obviously can be seen that sweet onions have a sweet flavour, and are more sweet than the others, but it is not very tangy.
  2. White onions are mild and they are also sweet, but not as much as sweet onions. They can be used in potato salads, pasta, salsa, etc.
  3. Yellow onions are have a strong flavour unlike white onions. They are more tangy, and can make the onion flavour in a dish stand out more.
  4. Red onions can be had raw just like sweet onions, but their flavour is stronger than sweet onions. Red onions are also very sweet and tangy.

    1. Use red onion, as it would both give sweetness and a zingy taste.
      Glad you like it 🙂 !!!
