How to Stop Tears while Chopping Onions?
It is onion’s chemical gas released in the air that irritates the eye while chopping. One of the best methods to avoid this discomfort is to chill onions in a Ziploc bag for 10 minutes, till they are cold. This helps in stopping the chemical gas that is released from the onion. But do not store onions in the fridge for long, as this may spoil other foods and will also affect onion’s texture.
