Description

Onion rings, onion rings, we all love onion rings. The problem is, when I get them in restaurants, they are soggy by the time I finish them. In light of that, I had to make my own and did they turn out super crispy and crunchy. 

[wpinsertshortcodead id="pgypi60b189d6e468e"]

Ingredients
  • 3 - 4 large onions, sliced into 14 inch sections
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup cold, cold sparkling water
  • 3/4 cups corn starch
  • 2 cups bread crumbs (I use Italian seasoning or Panko)
  • 3/4 quarts (3/4) litre of vegetable oil for frying
Instructions
  1. Divide the onions into rings. You will get various sizes. The ones you don't use, put in a bag for future use. Remove the membranes - see video. 

  2. To make the batter combine the flour, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Whisk until combined. Add the sparkling water and whisk until a smooth silky mixture forms.  

  3. Add the corn starch to a second bowl and the bread crumbs to a third bowl. 

  4. Dredge the onion rings into the corn starch until well covered. Then, into the batter. Lastly into the bread crumbs. Set them aside on a wire rack.

  5. In a large, flat pan, heat your oil to 350 degrees F or 180 C. You can use a deep fryer if you have one. 

  6. Place the onion rings into the oil. Fry them, in batches, until golden brown. This will take 4 or five minutes. Be sure to flip half way through. Set them aside on a wire rack.

  7. Serve your onion rings with your favourite condiment and enjoy.

Note

I use white onions, but you can use the onion of your choice. Just make sure they are fairly dry.

Adjust the seasoning according to your liking.

Panko or a coarse bread crumb work the best.

I fry in vegetable oil. If you use a different oil, make sure it has a high smoke point.
