Onions are an essential part of Indian cuisine. In fact, India is the only country in the world where onions are eaten raw. Rekha Unni uses onions to create her Caramelised Onion Bread. Onions are caramelised and then added to the flour and yeast mixture. The mixture is then kneaded into a dough and then baked. The result-a freshly baked loaf of bread that tastes as good as it smells!
