So, what is fried onion?

Fried onions are an essential ingredient in many cuisines around the world, known for their savory, crispy, and slightly sweet flavor. They are made by slicing onions and frying them in hot oil until they turn golden brown and crispy. The frying process caramelizes the natural sugars in the onions, resulting in a delightful sweetness that perfectly complements their savory notes. Fried onions are often used as a topping for burgers, hot dogs, salads, and soups, adding a delicious crunch and depth of flavor to any dish. They are also a popular ingredient in Indian, Middle Eastern, and Asian cuisine, where they are used to add texture and flavor to curries, biryanis, and stir-fries.
