Onion Rings

Onion Rings


1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons Corn Starch
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
1 cup milk, more as needed
salt and pepper to taste.
Dry bread crumbs (Panko)

I also added some paprika and a little bit of garlic powder.


Prepare some oil to fry the onion rings in.
Slice a large onion and separate the rings (tip: if you let the rings soak in ice cold water for about 10 minutes you are able to remove the inner skin of each of the rings this helps to keep the onion from pulling all out when you take a bite).
Mix together the flour, corn starch, baking powder, egg, milk, and salt and pepper into a batter that should resemble a pancake batter, if you like really crispy rings make the batter a little thicker.
Dip the rings into some flour (seasoned if you like) than into your batter, let the extra batter drip off and dip into the bread crumbs.
Fry until golden brown about 3 minutes on each side.

For a little extra treat, take some guacamole and put into the center of each of the rings freeze for about an hour or over night bread and fry just like you would with normal onion rings.
