This recipe provides you with super crispy onion rings, believe me, the spices are great, the crunchiness is great, you’re gonna love them. Kick things off by slicing a fairly large white onion at about a quarter-inch thick then divide them into rings. To make our batter, we are going to start by putting flour into a bowl, add cayenne pepper then water and stir for a minute until it thickens and set aside.
You can use breadcrumbs or not but if you are using breadcrumbs, put them in a pan and set aside then cut a large onion into rings and separate them from each other. By now, the thickened butter will be perfect. Dump a few rings at a time and let it coat into the butter then put the rings one after the other in the breadcrumbs using a separate fork. In a frying pan, put cooking oil and let it fry at 350 degrees.
Put the rings and let it fry for about three minutes until golden brown with a crisper look. Place them into a cooling rack and sprinkle them with salt and eat with ketchup. We hope you will give it a try and us how you made it on our Facebook page.
- 1 large yellow onion, sliced
- 1 large egg
- 1⁄4 cup vegetable or canola oil
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 6 cups vegetable or canola oil, for frying
- In a large bowl, combine egg, 1/4 cup oil, and milk. Mix with an electric mixer, set to low speed, for 1 minute. Add dry ingredients and continue to mix until smooth.
- Add 6 cups oil to a large, heavy-bottomed pot set to medium heat. Preheat for about 10 minutes, or until oil reaches about 375 degrees. Reduce heat to low-medium.
- Prepare a large baking sheet with paper towels, to drain excess grease off fried onion rings.
- Dip onion slices in batter, then place into hot oil. Do this in batches of 4-5 onion rings at a time, so they don’t stick together.
- Fry until golden on both sides, flipping after 30 seconds to 1 minute. Be attentive and take care not to burn. You may need to continue to reduce your heat as they cook.
- With a slotted spoon, remove onion rings to a paper towel lined sheet. Repeat with remaining batches.
