Caramelised Onions in Barbecue Sauce

This is a simple sauce that would amazingly go with any grilled item. I served it with grilled paneer/cottage cheese.


Onions – 5-6 medium ones

Garlic – 2 cloves

Red chilli flakes – 1/2 tsp

Barbecue sauce – 3 tbsp

Peri-peri sauce – 2 tsp

Vegetable stock – 3/4 cup

Olive oil – 1 tbsp

Butter- 1 tbsp

Salt to taste

For the Vegetable Stock:

Carrot – 1

Beans – 4-5

Onion – 1

Garlic – 1 clove

Bay leaf – 1

Peppercorn – 1/2 tsp

Coriander stalk – few

Water – 1.5 cups

Salt to taste


Vegetable Stock:

I did the basic stock. Just chop all the veggies into big chunks and take all the ingredients in a bowl and boil and simmer until it’s reduced in half the quantity. Strain when done and use in any recipe. If you have a little more time, you can saute the ingredients in some butter before adding water. This gives an intensely flavored stock.IMG_20171113_055526.jpg

Onion Sauce:

  1. Slice the onions thin and finely chop the garlic cloves.
  2. Heat the olive oil and butter in a pan. Add the chopped garlic and chilli flakes.
  3. Add the onions and saute well.Caramelized onion

  7. Cook until the sweetness of the onions is blended with the sauces and you get a jammy consistency that is sweet, hot and tangy at the same time.Caramelized onion
