Basic caramelised onions

The first few times I made these onions I used dried thyme. Soon after I started adding cumin seeds and now, I alternate between the two flavours, depending on what I am planning to serve with the onions. I use thyme if I want a more delicate flavour, and cumin when I serve it with meat.
