Fried Crispy Shallot

To peel off the shallot skin and to slice it, will make you CRY, and worsen if you rub your eyes with your hand.So , how to counter this?????
Here, the knife you're using, pierce it with one small shallot.See the attached photo.Then start peeling off the skin or slicing it,and here you are NO MORE TEARS.Try it!!!It's worked for me!!
Now, how to make it crispy? Very easy.

500 gm sliced shallots

2 tsp salt

Heat a wok over medium heat.Then add oil into it.
Mix salt into the sliced shallots.
When the oil hot, add in the shallot and fry until brown.
Dish and drain.
Let it cool, and store in airtight container.

After 1 or 2 week, if I still haven't finish the shallot, I'll store it in fridge, can last very long.

The fried shallot was so yummy, you can even eat it on it's own.

Please follow the method , step by step.Don't leave the mixed shallot for too long.
