Onion Rings - without Eggs
Onion rings are kids and even elders favorites when it comes to deep fried snacks. Here I have posted simple recipe to make these rings without eggs.
2 cups thick brown onion rings
½ cup plain flour (maida)
¼ cup cornflour
½ tsp cayenne pepper powder
½ tsp baking powder
Bread crumbs as required to coat the rings
Salt to taste
Combine the plain flour, cornflour, cayenne pepper, baking powder and salt and mix well.
Add approx. ¾ cup of water in a deep bowl and mix well using a whisk till no lumps remain.
Heat the oil in a deep pan, dip the onion rings one by one in the batter till they are evenly coated form all the sides now roll the rings in bread crumbs and deep-fry in hot oil on a medium flame, till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides. Do not add more than 5 rings to deep fry. Drain on an absorbent paper towel.
Serve immediately as it is or with tomato ketchup.
Do try to use brown or white onions to get thick rings, if you don’t find these then try to get large onions of your choice.
Make sure the bread crumbs are coarse if possible make them at home fresh(as I did not have fresh bread I used readily available crumbs).
Adding cayenne pepper is totally optional you need not flavour it and make it plain and add your flavour after the rings are fried.
