Gorimas seafood masala
Salt and fried in shallow oil until done

Slice onions in thin slices
Add to 750 ml white vinegar
1/4 cup water

1 tsp Gorimas leaf masala

Boil until onions are soft and transparent.
Add 3 tsp Maizena (Corn starch) to a little water, smoothen to a paste and add to onion sauce as this will thicken the sauce
