Spanish Onion Fritters
This one is a simple version. U can actually include whatever that u like. I love to fry it over a medium fire and see it brown to a sweet crisp when the onions began to caramelize.
5 spanish(purple) onions, thinly sliced
2 red chillies (deseeded and sliced thinly)
2 stalks of spring onions, chopped
2 stalks of flat-leaf parsley, chopped
1 egg (very optional)
salt to taste (1 tbsp or so)
500g all purpose flour
sufficient water to make batter
Mix the above and adjust water to get a nice batter to a dropping consistency. Heat enuff oil in the wok for deep frying. Drop spoonfuls of mixture into the hot oil and bring the fire to a medium. Fry on both sides till a crisp golden brown. Drain on kitchen paper and serve hot with sweet chilli dip.
5 red chillies
2 cloves of garlic
1 cup of water
1 tbsp vinegar or lime juice
sugar and salt
Ground the above ingredients and cook over a medium heat till sauce is cooked and reduced to a semi-thick consistency. Adjust water. Not too runny though. Taste. Shud be sweet,sour and spicy.
