1. Chew a chewing gum while cutting onions
Or
2. After peeling onions, soak them in bowl of water and leave them for 15 to 20 mins. Now cut them as the way you want.

We cry while peeling or chopping onions because they contain a mild acid that hurts our eyes. When in kitchen, it is best to ask for hacks from your granny. A commonly used way to prevent tearing when chopping onions is to keep them dipped in water for a while. Just remove the outer-most peel before you dip them in water. What happens is that the mild acid gets diluted in water and your problem gets solved. I have used this hack since ages and it has never failed. I hope now there will be no more crying in your kitchen because of cutting onions.
