Food is welcome to cooking , cooking .
Today , we are going to make a very quick and easy recipe .
Not a recipe that you would enjoy eating as it is , but a perfect add-on to any , any gravy or any biryani .
Today , we are going to make perfect fried onions .
It is basically known as barista .
So let's begin , the only two ingredients that you need is onion and oil .
So let's begin .
The first step for making barista or fried onions is to slice the onions .
Here , I'm using red onions .
I will slice it and then separate them .
Please try to slice the onions in one size only .
You can also use a machine if you want to .
I like to cut onions by hand .
I know that sounds crazy .
But totally , yes .
Today I'm making barista using one kg onion .
After slicing the onions here , you can see how I'm separating them .
Looks good .
I have prepared one kg onions and now it's time to make the barista to make the barista here .
I have a pan in this pan .
I'm going to add the onions along with the onions .
I'm going to add oil here .
I'm using about 100 ml of oil .
I like to use 10% of the original quantity .
What I mean is here , I'm using one kg onions and 100 ml .
Oil making is very easy guys .
Just that it takes a lot of time .
So you can just make it any day while making lunch or dinner .
I'm placing it in high heat and then we will give it a good mix to ensure all the onion pieces are well coated with oil .
After that , we will cover this pan and cook it for about 10 minutes .
What this step will do is it will ensure the onions get cooked very fast without a lid .
It will take much longer .
Please make sure you come back to the spot every two or three minutes to give it a stir .
Otherwise your onions will get brown from the bottom and raw from top .
This is the most difficult step of the recipe .
What I'm talking about is stirring the pot every now and then .
Here you can see the onions have started leaving a lot of moisture .
It's been about 10 minutes or so .
Only right now the flame is high itself .
We will let it stay as it is and cook the onions until they start clamping .
What I mean is they will start gathering together .
You can see the onions have started gathering together and the color is also slightly brown .
Now , we will lower the flame a little bit and then keep stirring it to ensure they separate .
The onions are mostly cooked .
Now it's time to brown them .
Here , you can see some onions are already golden and some are not .
This is why we have kept the flame low so that all the onion pieces get golden together .
This is the step where magic happens after about five minutes of continuously stirring it .
Here , you can see the onions have started separating and most of the onion pieces are also golden .
Now , our barista is almost ready .
Why I'm saying almost ready ?
That is because the barista will also cook after we take it out of the gas .
That's right .
All the onion pieces are golden .
Now we will take them out .
So turn off the heat , take a slotted spoon and then strain the onion .
Here , you can see how I'm using a second spoon to press it down , which will ensure all that excess oil is out from the onions .
Similarly , I will take out all the onions after taking out all the onions in a lot of kitchen towel , we will separate them using a fork .
This step is also very important .
If you don't separate them , then they will be as it is and it will be very difficult to use them .
So separate them using a fork .
And after that , let them stay as it is for at least one hour .
What will happen in that one hour , the excess oil will drain out and they will get very crunchy and crispy and of course they will get cooked as well with the remaining heat in the onions .
That's what I'm talking about .
So after one hour , the barista is ready .
Doesn't that look great ?
A perfect addition to your comas Biryani and your imaginations .
Also , please do not throw away the oil that we cook .
The onions in .
It is very flavorful .
You can use it in Biryani and K I do it as well .
I add it to the boiling water of rice .
When I'm making Biryani , our barista is ready .
You can make it with five kg , 10 kg , 15 kg , 20 kg and keep it in your freezer .
This will last easily for a year if you would like to see more recipes using barista .
