First, take two onions and cut them into half rings. Then put the onions in a separate bowl and add 1 teaspoon of salt. Close the bowl tightly and shake it well. After that, let the bowl sit for a few minutes so that the onions release their juice.

Add 2 tablespoons of flour to the onions and shake the bowl again, covering it with a lid. Next, pour the onions into a sieve and shake them a little to remove the excess flour. If the onions have extra flour crumbs, they can cause a bitter taste when fried.

Now put the pan on the stove and add about 150-200 ml of oil. Do not skimp on the oil - you need it to completely cover the bottom of the pan.

Once the oil is hot, pour the onions into the pan and stir regularly. After a while, the onions will turn a beautiful golden color. Then you need to take the onions out of the pan and put them on a paper towel to remove the excess oil.

Now your crispy and golden fried onions are ready to be added to any dish. Enjoy!
