Serves: 4


  • 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.
