Onion rings are a great addition next to a hamburger (homemade of course!) and even as a snack in front of the TV. Onion rings are crisp, tasty and sometimes they are even more fun than just chips. Nothing beats onion rings coated with tempura and bread crumbs.
- Prep Time : 20 minutes
- Cook Time : 20 minutes
- Peel the onions.
- Cut each onion into slices about half a centimeter thick up to three-quarter inches.
- Separate the slices into rings.
- For the rings that are too small, Set aside and keep them for salad.
- Put the flour in a bowl with corn-starch.
- Slowly begin to pour the soda, while continuously mixing with a whisk.
- Pour the soda until the mixture is very thick - but not a pasty liquid. Like when you lift the whisk – there should be a liquidy mixture coming from the bowl.
- Add the spices and stir thoroughly.
- Fill another bowl with bread crumbs.
- Take a handful of onion rings - Dip in batter and place in bread crumbs for coating.
- After the rings are coated nicely - Transfer to an empty bowl and repeat these steps until all the onion rings are coated properly.
- Heat a pan with oil to 350 Fahrenheit (boiling them).
- Put a handful in at a time for frying.
- When a beautiful golden rings appear – Remove them from the oil to paper towels to soak up the oil.
It’s finally ready…..enjoy!
