Buy Online Pyaaz Onion (500gm)
The onion also known as the bulb onion or common onion, is the most widely cultivated species.
Onions are commonly chopped and used as an ingredient in various hearty warm dishes, and may also be used as a main ingredient in their own right, for example in French onion soup or onion chutney. They are versatile and can be baked, boiled, braised, grilled, fried, roasted, sautéed, or eaten raw in salads. Their layered nature makes them easy to hollow out once cooked, facilitating stuffing them, as in sogan-dolma. Onions are a staple in Indian cuisine, used as a thickening agent for curries and gravies. Onions pickled in vinegar are eaten as a snack. These are traditionally a side serving in pubs and fish and chip shops throughout the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. Pickled onions form part of a British pub ploughman’s lunch, usually served with cheese and ale. In North America, sliced onions are battered, deep-fried, and served as onion rings.
The large size of onion cells makes them ideal for practicing microscopy. These cells from the epidermis of a red onion are naturally pigmented.
Onions have particularly large cells that are readily observed under low magnification. Forming a single layer of cells, the bulb epidermis is easy to separate for educational, experimental, and breeding purposes.
Onions are, therefore, commonly employed in science education to teach the use of a microscope for observing cell structure.
Onions are toxic to dogs, cats, guinea pigs, and many other animals.
