Glittering golden piaz daagh

Sliced fried onions are the base of most Iranian dishes. They are also used to garnish certain types of dishes, notably aash-e reshteh.

When used as garnish, onions must be prepared and stir-fried in a special way, resulting in a delicate, crunchy and golden piaz daagh so hard to resist munching as a delicious delicacy! Here is how you do it:

Slice white onions extra thin in equal lengths and fry them in a lot of hot oil in a frying pan. Fry them over low heat in small batches. Here is the trick: each thin slice of onion should be apart from any other in the cooking oil, almost swimming in it

Keep tossing and flipping them and after a while you will note that they are turning crisp and golden instead of going soft and translucent (as is the case when you are preparing it for khoresh

Once done, remove them from the heat and spread them on two layers of paper towel. As the towel absorbs the excess oil, the onions get even crispier and they can be preserved for weeks if kept in a sealed container in the refrigerator

    سلام، خیلی خوشحالم از آشنایی با خودتون وو بلاگتون.
    من کلاً عاشق آشپزی ام،و عاااااشق پیاز داغ، پیاز داغ هام هم تعریف از خود نباشه عااااااالی میشن، همینجوری طلایی و نازک و خشک و چیپسی 🙂
    دوستام همیشه میگن باید یه کلاس تهیه پیاز داغ برای ما بذاری :))
    خوشحالم که یه نفر دیگه هم مثل من به کیفیت پیاز داغش اهمیت میده، بارها شده که دیدم خانمها سرسری و بی توجه پیاز داغ درست میکنن که یا میسوزه و یا پخته میشه.
    موفق باشید.
