Playing chef in the kitchen is akin to putting on a show. Most of us learn to cook by watching our elders or being guided through the process. However, knowing simple solutions and cooking hacks that can assist us in the kitchen is always useful. Cutting an onion, among many other things, is a difficult chore. Onions bring tears to your eyes, and they never get as finely chopped as we want them to. Here's a viral hack that's for everyone who wants to learn how to cut onions. An Instagram video uploaded by the handle “What How Why” shows you how to chop onions easily and finely.
In the video, we can see a man taking an onion and slicing it in half. He then takes off the outer cover and removes a scale (the outer layer of an onion). The final step is to flatten the layer followed by cutting it into finely chopped pieces. Interesting, isn't it? Not that we haven't seen anyone cutting onion before but wish we knew this step-by-step process. It appears to make the process easier in comparison. So, the next time you're in the kitchen and need to cut an onion, give this a try.
More than 84,000 users have viewed the video titled ‘Learning how to cut an onion', which has gotten some unusual feedback. All you'll need is a knife and, of course, onions.
People dropped a range of comments as well. Some users found the idea very cool while others learnt from it.
Looking at the video, a user commented, “You just changed my entire life,” with a laughing emoji.
“I know 5 ways to cut onions and I have never seen people cutting like that,” wrote another user.
A third user said, “Thanks, I'm gonna use this for the pasta I'm making tomorrow.”

Food videos that often go viral are fun to watch. Ever thought you could cut tomatoes with a KitKat bar? Well, if not, then you need to see this. Another hack was shared by the same Instagram handle that showed how to cut a tomato using a KitKat bar as the knife. In this, a man sharpened a KitKat bar on a knife sharpening stone and then finally used it to cut a tomato. It's unbelievable but the KitKat bar worked like a proper knife on the tomato. Take a look at it here.
It's interesting how food hacks or videos often surprise us on social media.
