Frying Shallots Thai Food Style
There is no recipe as such, it isn't really needed, but take a look at our frying shallots video tutorial for full guidance.
Firstly select your shallots and peel and slice them them nice and thin, about the thickness of a penny is fine
Heat your wok containing about a cup of oil to medium high heat
Test for temperature by dropping a small piece of sliced shallot into the hot oil, if it fizzles and sizzles, then it's hot enough
Chuck in the rest of the shallots and stir gently and continuously until they start to turn golden brown, some of the wispier bits will go darker brown and that's fine
Remove from the oil and leave to cool and drain to dry, when cool they should be light and slightly crunchy, see the perfection test in the frying shallots video
This is such a lovely refreshing and lightly flavoured garnish you can use it with any food, not just Thai food. Look out in our recipes to see how often it is used and where, we give a few examples in the video. One lovely recipe for you to see is Son in Laws Eggs Recipe
