First let’s look at how to chop an onion:
Look at our onion, it has 2 sides one is the root side and it looks like this
This is the side you want to leave on till then end, the end you cut off is this end
Then you need to peel your onion and cut it in 1/2 through the root so that both halves will have part of the root attached
Then peel the skin off and lay flat. I usually lay a hand on top of the onion and then hold your knife parallel to the cutting board and cut layers. Do not cut all the way through the onion leave the root on, this is what holds your onion together while you dice it.
Next you cut your onion horizontal to the cutting board again only cutting so that you don’t cut to the back of the onion.
Then cut horizontal across the face of the onion and you will have a perfect dice without your onion falling all over the place and getting odd sizes.
