South Indian Onion Strings Pickled Salad

Thinly slice a white or red onion. Mix 0.5 cup apple cider vinegar to cover the onions with a couple of teaspoons white sugar, 0.25 tspn kashmiri chilli powder (adds colour and a warm heat), a pinch turmeric and 1 small tspn salt. Cover the onion strings with the vinegar mixture and allow to sit for 5 mins before serving.

recipe notes and alternatives
You can use lemon juice or white wine vinegar in place of the cider vinegar. In India, the locally made vinegars are often used.

Add finely chopped coriander leaves and/or finely chopped green chilli.

Try eating these with poppadoms (papad) before tucking into your main course.
