How many onions are needed for


Senior Member
I wonder how to express " needed for.. in a sentence like for instance "How many onions is needed for (to make) an aubergine salad"
Could it be like these:

Πόσα κρεμμύδια πρέπει να χρησιμοποιήσεις για τη μελιτζανοσαλάτα;
Πόσα κρεμμύδια χρειάζεται να φτιάχνεις μελιτζανοσαλάτα;

    It should be "How many onions are needed..." But for some strange and inexplicable reason I can imagine someone saying "is needed", though of course it's wrong.

    The funny thing is that this dish is not usually made with onions at all, though garlic is an essential ingredient.
