Serves: 4Hands-on: 20 minutesTotal: 30 minutesDifficulty: Easy
- 4 cups vegetable oil
- 1 lb. yellow onions, peeled and thinly sliced
- In a deep pan, heat the oil until it is almost smoking. Reduce the heat to medium, and wait about 30 seconds.
- Add the onions a few at a time and deep-fry until they are golden brown and crispy. Transfer the onions onto a paper towel to absorb the extra oil. Continue until all the onions have been fried.
- When the onions have cooled off for about 10 minutes, roughly pound them with a rolling pin. Store in a jar for up to 2 months.
