My onion ring recipe is crispy on the outside but tender and sweet inside. I use the sweet onion variety, which is mild and less pungent.
The ingredients are simple and it is quite an easy snack to prepare.
I initially dredge the onion rings in flour so the batter will stick to the onion and not come off during frying.
My secret for the amazing crisp is that I use ice cold water in the batter, which is also made up of flour, cornstarch, baking powder, seasonings, egg and water.
Onion rings are usually side dish to a burger or a sandwich but no rule says you can't make a snack out of it.
Children don’t usually eat onions in a dish, but I am sure this is one vegetable they would be asking for more.
