A Must-Have Condiment, Just Perfect For Everything
Crispy fried shallots is one of the key condiments used in Asian cooking. It brings a light crispiness, as well as a remarkable aromatic flavour to any dish. This fried shallots recipe was taught to me by my beloved mum who always made her own crispy fried shallots for all her cooking at home.

Because of their extraordinarily sweet nature, shallots make a fantastic garnishing when sliced thinly and fried to perfect crispness with a lovely golden colour. They add loads of flavour and fragrance to just about any dish. They taste great with fried rice, noodles, soups, congee and snacks. Fried shallots is definitely one of the most popular garnishes.
