Ingredients

How to make it

  • Combine the eggs and milk in a bowl.
  • Mix the flour, baking powder, salt, garlic powder, parsley flakes,and paprika together and add to the milk.
  • Mix well.
  • The batter should have the consistency of a thin pancake batter.
  • Peel the onions and cut crosswise into 1/4 inch slices.
  • Separate into rings (save unusable pieces for another purpose).
  • Place the onions in cold water if they are not used immediately to maintain crispness.
  • Drain and dry the onions thoroughly.
  • Dredge with flour and shake off excess. (This step isn't always necessary, but it helps the batter adhere.)
  • Dip a few pieces at a time in the batter and fry in deep fat (350°F) until golden brown. This only take a minute or two.
  • Drain and serve immediately.
  • ______________________
  • Note:
  • There are some variations listed below you might also enjoy!
  • Beer Batter
  • Substitute light beer for the milk.
  • Omit baking powder because the carbonation of the beer acts as a leavener.
  • Buttermilk Batter
  • Substitute buttermilk for the milk and use 1 tsp baking soda instead of the 2 tsp baking powder.
  • Other Fried Vegetables:
  • Try this with sweet potatoes, kohlrabi, cauliflower...... for a taste variety!
  • ENJOY! :+D

    This looks great. I love all onion rings, but this looks like a step above the rest. I have heard that adding 1/2 t. of sugar makes them crispier and browner. Have you heard of this?
