Homemade Fried Shallots
Recipe, notes, and photos by Thảo Bùi
Makes about 4oz of fried shallots
Fried shallots or hành phi is a very popular garnish in Vietnamese cuisine. They're sprinkled on noodle soups, sticky rice, steamed rice cakes, or stir fried dishes. When I was regularly running my pop-up, Duy and I used to spend hours frying shallots. It was a very time consuming process. But with Vân Vân Coastal Purple Shallot, you can get golden and crispy fried shallots in under 10 minutes!
