Sprinkle with sugar, salt and pepper. Cook until dark golden brown, stirring occasionally. Line plate with double thickness of paper towels. With slotted spoon, transfer onions to plate to cool. (Onions will crisp slightly.) In medium bowl, mix sour cream, strained yogurt and onions. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour. (Dip is best after sitting for a day.) Garnish with chives.
