Where can I find them and have you actually seen them recently ???
I used to buy lots of these fried shallots at Ranch 99 and Lion in Fremont but now they are GONE. The only thing with that brand was the fried garlic.
I tell you, these fried shallots are very SPECIAL. Extremely fragrant compared to other brands that were loaded with flour coating and pale colors and INEDIBLE. I have several cans of these lowly brands sitting around-they are useless totally. On the other hand, the Nang Fah brand has dark brown color, fragrant and taste just like if you made them and fry them on your own.
Again, these are some of the very addictive condiments like the uniquitous chilis. Once you try them, you might be hooked deeply.
I use them on soups, sprinkle over rice and over many things both Asian and Western cooking.
