oh congratulations to you. i m sure you have got enough tips for the question you asked. a word of advice from me, which has absolute no relation to cooking. dont spoil your husband. when its all new and you want to put ur best show. you are setting an expectation that it will always stay like this. when reality of life is it wudnt stay the same. once you have kids, you will get so busy with life, it wudnt always be possible to serve nonveg everyday. most men are not realistic. so if you know you are not going to continue what you are doing now, make that clear. I could be blunt in my suggestion, but trust me it all comes from personal life experience.
Just keep a small piece of union on your head and start chopping you will free from tears
Hi Shilpa keeping the peeled onions in water for sometime before chopping would help. Also if you have a chopper - electric or manual- Voila, you are good to go!! All the best.

While cutting onions ... you can put a bowl of water in front of you ... this will make u free from tears !!!!!
