very easy to make crispy and delicious

To make these onion rings, we will use the most common and easy to find onion, the yellow onion. Also, these are usually large onions and are the best for cooking because they contain a lot of sugars and are sweet when cooked, which is what we need for this recipe.

The batter we recommend is threefold: first flour, then a mixture of flour with eggs and milk and finally breadcrumbs. With these three layers of dough we will ensure it our onions are very crispy and the batter sticks to the onion.

When it comes to frying the onion rolls, you have to control the temperature of the oil very well, we don’t want it too hot because then they won’t cook through, although if the oil doesn’t reach the right temperature the rings will absorb a lot of oil and won’t be crispy, so it’s best to fry in small batches. Don’t forget to save the oil you made the rings in because, as we know you’ll love this appetizer, you can make more and freeze the ones you’re not going to eat before you fry them. You will only need to prepare the oil and directly fry the frozen onion rings, so that you can enjoy this appetizer at any time.

Beat the batter until there are no lumps. If necessary, we could drain it to make the dough thinner.

The next step is to cut the onion rings. We will use 2 yellow onions of approximately 250 g each, peel them and cut them into slices 1 cm thick.

Put the 50 g of flour that we kept on a plate and cover the onion rings. It is important that the rings are very dry, so if they have released a little liquid when cut, we will dry them with kitchen paper before coating them with flour.

After layering the rings in the flour, we dipped them in the batter we had prepared and drained them slightly.

The last step before frying the onion rings is to roll them in breadcrumbs, so we will have a plate with 200g of breadcrumbs to cover each ring.

Prepare a pot with plenty of olive oil and let it heat up. To know that the oil is at its optimal temperature, put a piece of bread in the oil and, when it starts to brown, put the onion rings.

Fry the onion rings for a few minutes in small batches so that the temperature of the oil does not drop. We turn them over when they turn brown on one side and wait for them to turn brown on the other side before removing them from the oil.
