Onion Ring


Onion Ring is a snack/appetizer that commonly served in US restaurant. Normally the large size of sweet onion will be used for this cooking. It will be cut and split to about 1/3" ring slices then dipped in batter, coated with seasoned bread crumbs then deep fried.


When we talk about deep fried food, it is always give you a sign of unhealthy food. Ya... I know. But, I think it is no harm to eat it once a while, right? We have a saying food, yummy food is always unhealthy, but healthy food is always tasted blend. So, I don't my to spoil my stomach once a while.


To prepare the onion rings, you need :

7. 1/2~3/4 seasoned bread crumbs - sprinkle some salt to taste
8. Some oil for deep frying

Steps :

1. Heat up the oil in a deep frying pan.
2. Mix well the flour, baking powder and salt.
3. Place the onion ring in the dry flour mixture, dust/coat each ring well.
4. After all the rings are dusted/coated, whisk the egg and milk into the flour mixture to form the batter.
5. Dip the floured onion rings in the batter, then remove and place it on the cooling rack by a kabob skewer (or any thin stick), let the batter drip off a bit from the rings.
