Homemade Crispy Fried Shallots

Last week I bought a whole bunch of large size shallot at our Farmer Market.The price is quite affordable compare with the mini shallot that sold in Asian market.I preferred the large size shallot from Farmer market because it's local produces.I tried to use  local products as much as I can to save the planet and for safety issue too. I believed the red mini shallot are produce from China.Nowadays, I tried to avoid getting China products that have no food safety regulator control. Prevention is better than cure,right? Well,what to do with all the shallot that I bought? Fried shallots make a terrific topping for steaks,noodle,rice,salads, and soups.Fried shallots are used as condiments in many Asian dishes.




Ingredients:

2 lbs shallots,peeled and slice
1 cup all purpose flour +1/2 cup rice flour
2 cup canola oil




Method:
1. Peel and slice shallots as thinly as possible, using a mandoline or a very sharp knife. Spread shallots out in a thin layer on a large sheet tray, overlapping them as little as possible; doing so prevents them from clumping up when fried.
2:Heat oil in fryer or stock pot at high heat.Spread slice shallots into the flour mixture,coat well.Shake the excess flour before toss in the fryer.
3:Fry the shallots until golden brown.Sieve the fried shallots on a paper towel to absorb the excess oil.Cool down before store in air tight container.
4:Sprinkle in your food or soup as garnishing to make it taste better.
