  • I would like to suggest you that always use red pearl onions to make this sirka pyaz as i would avoid using green or white onions as they may not yield the same result as red ones.
  • Also the solution of vinegar and salt can be reuse to make another batch of this pickle but you have to add more salt in it as per the quantity of your pickle.
  • I am using beetroot to give the nice red color to this sirke wale pyaz, although this is optional, if you want to skip beetroot then you may skip it.
