1/1 Photo of Bawang Goreng(Fried Shallots)
These crispy shallots make a great topping for steaks, salads, and soups and are used throughout Indonesia! Use the leftover frying oil for vinaigrettes and for sauteing anything savory. Adapted from Saveur magazine.
My Private Note
- 1Peel and slice the shallots as thinly as possible, using a mandoline or a very sharp knife.
- 2Spread the sliced shallots out in a thin layer on a large sheet tray, overlapping as little as possible(so they won't clump when fried).
- 3Pour peanut oil into a small heavy saucepan to a depth of 1". Heat over medium hight heat until a deep fry thermometer registers 325*F. Working in 5-6 small batches, add shallots to oil and fry, stirring constantly, until light golden brown, about 1 1/2 minutes. To get them perfectly golden, remove them from the oil a few seconds before they actually appear done. Remove shallots from oil with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towel lined plate(they'll darken slightly as they sit). Let cool.
- 4To store, refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
- 5Makes about 2 cups.
