We primarily use this as a bed for many of our Lamb based dishes served Hot but once used we tend to use it up over the course of the week with other cooks as a side dish.

The onions are set aside to be added later so these can be prepared in advance before serving. However do not prepare more than 6 hours before serving as the onions will start to go soggy, Particularly if you stored them in the fridge
