  • Meanwhile fry the sliced onions in the oil with continuously stirring until they become golden and crisp. Take out the fried onions and keep them on the tissue paper to cool. Cool them completely and put in a blender. Blend it to make coarse powder, do not blend much as they begin to release oil.
