Note: Crispy fried onions are sold in packages in East Indian grocery stores. They can also be prepared by slicing onions into thin circles, heating oil in a pan and deep-frying them until they turn golden brown. Remove them from the pan, drain and cool on a baking tray. Store in an airtight container for up to 8 months.
