Golden Sauteed Onions

Prep: 5 minutes Cook: 30 minutes


We like these on top of burgers, Dal, sandwiches, BBQ Jackfruit and many other foods. These take some time to cook, so don't be impatient. Store them in a covered container in the refrigerator.


  • 4 onions, chopped
  • 1 cup water


Place the onions in a large non-stick saute pan. Do not add any of the water yet. Cook the onions over medium heat, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes. After 10 minutes the onions will start to stick slightly and begin to take on a golden hue. Add 1/8 cup of the water and continue to stir frequently. The onions will get more golden in color and begin to stick again. Add another 1/8 cup of the water, stirring frequently. Repeat this process every 2-3 minutes and the onions will become very soft and golden brown. Turn off the heat for the final 2 minutes but continue to stir to release the browned bits from the saute pan. Serve warm or cold.

Hint: These will keep for about a week in the refrigerator.
