How to make crispy brown onions
Crispy onions are an ingredient that I have always used store-bought until now. I just did not realise they were so easy and quick to make. But recently I needed some for another recipe I was making and did not have them in-house. So I decided to try and make them myself. Soooooo easy!
In this recipe I use a brown onion, which will give you enough crispy onions for a couple of hot dogs or burgers, as a great alternative to using caramelized onions.
You can make these crispy onions in a single pan. Firstly you simply boil the shaved onion for about 4 minutes, and after sieving and drying you deep fry them in some vegetable oil until browned and crispy.
It is important to keep stirring them and keeping them apart while they are frying so that they do not stick together. Use a slotted spoon or sieve to remove them from the boiling oil when they are finished.
It really could not be easier. No flour or batter is necessary. No hassle. Just be careful with the boiling oil, and make sure all of the water is removed properly before you add to the oil.
Air fryer gluten-free crispy onions?
Having seen how easy this was I am now wondering how easy it will be to make crispy onions in the air fryer without having to deep fry them.
Perhaps we can make them fat-free as well as gluten-free? I think I will have a go at that soon 😃.
I hope you found this useful and use it on your own creations at home!
