Packed with Vitamins B6 and C, iron, magnesium and calcium, onions, raw and cooked, are a delicious part of many Indian dishes. Onions are anti-bacterial and antiseptic and help keep you free from infections. Mixing some honey with onion juice is a home remedy that acts as a cough syrup that relieves coughs and sore throats. It also helps control the blood sugar levels in the body.
How to Store:
Firm unblemished onions can be stored in a cool, dry space at room temperature. Do not store in plastic bags or next to potatoes.
To prevent the eyes from watering, peel onions under cold water or put them in the freezer for ten minutes before chopping.
