You will find these crisp and tasty toppings and accompaniments served with everything from soups and salads to curries and stir-fries. Although commercially prepared shallot and garlic flakes are available in Asian markets, they cannot compare to the freshly made ones given here.
8 shallots or garlic cloves, cut cross-wise into slices 1/8 inch thick
Peanut or vegetable oil for frying  
Fried Shallot or Garlic Flakes Recipe at
In a frying pan over medium heat, pour in peanut or vegetable oil to a depth of 1/2 inch. When the oil is moderately hot (about 325 degrees F.), add the shallot or garlic slices. Fry slowly, stirring, just until golden brown, 2-3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the slices to paper towels to drain. Let cool, then store the flakes in an airtight container at room temperature for up to several weeks.

Serving size = 2 tablespoons
