Huh, I wonder how one would have to refer to red onions and white onions.

I think that what we call red onions, Indonesians call 'bawang Bombay'.

By default i guess 'bawang' refers to a white onion.

So there's not much onion variety in Indonesia where it becomes an issue? What about green onion (spring onion)?

It sounds as if the shallot may be the standard onion in Indonesian cooking.
