Onion Rings

Had a bunch of onions lying around so I wanted t0 make crispy onion rings! I used this recipe and made some slight modifications.

  • SLICE SOME RINGS
    Use a sharp knife and slice 1/4 inch thick rings. I like variation so I sliced thinner + thicker sizes as well.
  • DRY COATING
    In a bowl, mix together flour (1 cup), baking powder (1 teaspoon), and salt (1 teaspoon). Take your onions rings and coat them in this mixture and set aside (not a lot will adhere, but that's okay).
  • BATTER UP
    In the same bowl, mix in 1 egg and 1 cup of milk (I used unsweetened coconut milk) and whisk with a fork to make a batter. If it's too thick, add some more milk. Dip the onion rings in the batter and set aside.
  • CRUMB COATING
    In a shallow dish or bowl, pour enough bread crumbs (I used panko) to cover the bottom. Grab one ring at a time and coat with crumbs all over. Set aside on a dish or on top of your head.
  • PREPARE TO FRY
    Heat oil in a deep fryer or deep pot to 365 degrees (who really measures this? just make sure it's hot by testing with bread crumbs). Your rings are ready to fry: just for fun, say something threatening to them as if you're ending their lives.

Fry a few rings at a time making sure not to overcrowd the fryer, pot, or cauldron. After about a minute or two on each side (rings will be a golden brown color) carefully remove onto paper towels. If you wish, sprinkle with additional seasoning while they're hot (if you wait until they're cold, the seasoning will bounce off and you'll feel embarrassed). Enjoy!
