  1. Pickled Red Onions goes really well with Chole Bhature, Pav Bhaji, Dal MakhniNaan and Dal-Rice as salad. Sometimes, people eat them with Khichdi also.
  2. Pickled Red Onions can be refrigerated and stored for up-to 3 days for best results.
  3. There is no need to drain out the lemon juice. You can keep the Onions dipped in Lemon juice when you refrigerate. You may want to drain the Lemon juice on 2nd or third day as it would have turned the Onions extra Sour by that time.
