  • 72 rings or 1 white onion – shaved on setting 1 on a gravity slicer or mandolin
  • 30 g salt</


Place the shaved onion on a perforated tray with a deep set baking tray beneath it. Mix together the salt and sugar and cover the onions with it. Leave to stand for 1 hour to remove excess liquid.

After an hour, squeeze the onions to remove any remaining liquid. Deep fry in oil until they are a deep golden brown and crispy. Drain excess oil on paper towels.
