Shallow fry the onions in little oil on medium low flame till they turn golden brown. Cool it and make a paste. You can also use store bought fried onions.

Hi Inara: what is brown onion paste?

Reply :-
Brown Onion paste is the paste made out of fried onions. You can find fried onions in most of the indian stores or you can make it at home.
