Caramelised Onions

This is one of my favourites. I can eat this with anything. It is very easy to make but take a lot of patience cos cooking it may takes up to an hour with the amount of onions before cooking reduced to less than half at the end of cooking.

  • 6 Red Onion, sliced
  • 2 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sugar or Maple syrup
  • a pinch of salt
  • Water, broth or wine (optional)

How to do it:
  1. Heat pan with oil.
  2. Add in all the onion and stir-fry till onions are well coated with oil.
  3. Continue cooking till onion has softened.
  4. Add in salt and sugar or maple if using and stir well.
  5. Spread out the onion and let it cook on medium low heat.
  6. Stir once a while (abt every few minute) only to prevent it from sticking and burning. If you keep stirring, it will not brown and caramelised.
  7. If the onions are sticking, add a little water to deglaze it. You can use wine or broth instead if you like.
  8. Continue cooking till onions turned darker and darker and to a texture to your desire.
  9. Dish and serve, here with sausages.
