Notes

  1. Sprinkling water while shallow frying, ensures that less oil is used in cooking. This is my moms tip.
  2. Another tip is to cover the frying pan while shallow frying. This ensures that cooking is faster as heat is preserved.
  3. After cooking, keep the lid of frying pan closed till you serve the dish. The rava fried onion slices will continue to get cooked even after the heat if turned off and will also remain warm.
