as i mentioned earlier, pickle or condiments are served as accompaniments for taste enhancer. well technically sirka pyaz recipe is not an achar or pickle as per the indian standard. however, the basic fundamental principle remains the same. the onions are stored and preserved in salted vinegar solution so that it can be used later. basically, when the onions are stored with vinegar, it not only preserves it. but the onions would absorb salt and sour taste from vinegar and thus making the ideal accompaniment. i personally like it as it is and serve it as a snack or an entree before my meal. but certainly, it can be served anytime as it is a simple and versatile condiment.

furthermore, i would like to add some tips, suggestions and variations for a perfect sirka pyaz recipe. firstly i would heavily recommend to use small red onions or particularly shallots for this recipe. i would avoid white or green onions as it may not yield the same result as red ones. secondly, once the salt and vinegar solution is used for the first batch, the same solution can be reused for the next batch. but you may need to add some salt based on the onion quantity. for the below-mentioned onion quantity, you may add half portion for next batch. lastly, adding beetroot gives vibrant red colour to the sirke wale pyaaz however its optional.
