How to make onion rings in some simple steps

Making onion rings at home is a fun and tasty project! Here’s a simple step-by-step guide to help you make crispy and delicious onion rings:

Onion rings
  • 2 large onions
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • Oil for frying (vegetable, canola, or peanut oil works well)
  • Optional seasonings: paprika, garlic powder, cayenne pepper
  • Deep fryer or a deep skillet
  • Mixing bowls
  • Whisk
  • Tongs
  • Paper towels
  • Peel the onions and slice them into 1/4-inch thick rings.
  • Separate the rings from each other.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. You can also add optional seasonings like paprika or garlic powder for extra flavor.
  • In a small bowl, beat the egg and then mix it with the milk.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk until the mixture is smooth.
  • Place the bread crumbs in a shallow dish.
  • Dip each onion ring into the batter, making sure it is fully coated.
  • Then, dredge the battered onion rings in the bread crumbs, again ensuring they are completely covered.
  • Heat the oil in a deep fryer or deep skillet to 375°F (190°C). The oil should be deep enough to allow the onion rings to float.
  • Test the temperature of the oil by dropping a small amount of batter into it. If it sizzles and comes to the top quickly, it's ready.
  • Using tongs, carefully lower a few onion rings into the hot oil. Do not overcrowd the fryer; cook them in batches.
  • Fry the onion rings until they are golden brown, usually taking about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Remove the onion rings with tongs or a slotted spoon and place them on paper towels to drain excess oil.
  • Serve the onion rings hot. They are perfect with dipping sauces such as ketchup, ranch dressing, or a spicy mayonnaise.

Enjoy your homemade onion rings as a delicious snack or side dish!
