Cook stirring constantly, for 5-6 minutes until the onion is soft and translucent. Add the sugar and fry for a few more minutes until the onion begins to caramelize. Add the lime juice and take the pan off the heat.
  3. Heat 2 inches (5 cm) of oil in a kadhai, small wok, or large saucepan over medium heat to 325F (160C) on a deep-fry or a candy thermometer. Toss the beef in the rice flour until brown and crisp.
