Add the onion into the pan, along with agenerous pinch of salt.
Fry it gently for 12-15 minutes, or until the onion has softened and is turning translucent.
Before adding the garlic, you need to crush it.
Peel one clove by crushing it lightly with the flat of a knife and the heel of your hand.
Chop garlic finely, then sprinkle over a little salt.
Use the flat of the blade and a paddling motion to squash the chopped garlic, working your way across the pile.
Add the garlic to the pan and fry for a further minute.
