FRIED ONIONS FOR BIRYANI OR PULAO

Here is an easy recipe of fried onions, which is more flavorful and used in making any biryani and pulao. Can store it in Air-tight container and keep it in refrigerator for a few days.

INGREDIENTS:
3 Medium Onions
3 tsps Cornflour
1/2 tsp Salt
6 tbsps Oil 

METHOD:
Cut onions in very thin slices. Marinate onion with cornflour and salt.

Mix nicely. Set aside for 30 minutes.

Heat oil in a wok. Add onions in batches.

Fry till both sides turns into brown.

Drain oil and remove from wok, and keep on a kitchen towel to absorb the excess oil from it. Fry the remaining onions like the same.

May use it instantly to make biryani or pulao. Otherwise, pour it in airtight container and store it in refrigerator for future use. 

*** The excess oil can be used in other cooking.

  5. Hi Sanoli,

    I too fry the onions in same way. But after sprinkling salt I squeeze out the water from onions and then sprinkle cornflour as it reduces the frying time . Nice post of fried onions...
