This Live broadcast was in response to the many questions I’ve received from my previous short, edited video on the same topic – . I figured if you got to see me make it from start to finish you might get a better sense of what’s involved in making this at home.

How to Make Crispy Fried Onions


  • 6 large brown onions, peeled
  • 1L cooking oil

*You’ll need – mandolin (thin setting), wok, wooden spoon, sieve, paper towels, large bowl or tray


  1. Heat oil in wok to 200°C.
  2. Slice onions thinly using mandolin.
  3. Add onion slices in smallish batches into oil. Be careful with oil as it will bubble up due to moisture content in onion.
  4. Fry until at least couple of shades before the final desired result; remove with sieve and scatter on paper towel-lined tray.
  5. Allow to cool completely before storing.
