Fried shallots are usually served as a condiment on the table or sprinkled over cooked dishes. They can be purchased packaged in jars or cellophane bags at all Asian grocery stores; once opened, they keep for months if stored tightly sealed. Make your own by frying thinly sliced shallots until crisp and golden-brown.
