Its pretty simple.

  1. Take a bowl / vessel
  2. Fill the bowl/vessel with water
  3. Soak the onions into the vessel filled with water
  4. Keep aside for 5 minutes
  5. After that remove the skin and cut the onions
  6. You won’t get tears or irritation in your eyes.

OR you can refrigerate and cut the onions.

When an onion is cut, lachrymator compounds are released that is why we get tears.

Lachrymator – methionine and cystine(a part of amino acid).
