What bracha should one make on raw and fried onions?

Answer:

Although onions are commonly eaten raw, they are generally only eaten this way as an accompaniment to other foods, e.g. in a salad. In that case, the onions are tafel and require no b’racha. If one eats a raw onion alone, the b’racha is shehakol, and the same applies to boiled onions. The b’racha ha’adama is only recited for fried onions, which are sometimes eaten alone in this form.
