Chopping Onions ?

Every one has some suggestion when it comes to chopping onions , or at least is looking for one. I heard them all, from looking away , wearing glasses (yes!) , soaking them in water, keeping the cut side up and cutting after some time etc... etc... etc...

Few days back I came across this very useful and effective tip(saw it on TV).

Chopping onions makes us all cry .....doesn't it ? So the next time you chop onions , just light a (scented) candle near your chopping board and there will be no more tears ....it really works.

Hey Rahin...guess what thats a new tip! My MIL inserts a small onion (cheri-ulli)at the tip of her knife prior to peeling and chopping other onions to prevent tears, I used to keep a safety pin between my teeth, after a tip on TV! My eyes stopped watering..but my mouth started to water! :D (y bcoz i was keeping my mouth focussed on holding the safety pin intact between my front teeth, salivating!!)
