Spicy crispy batter with the sweet tang of onion – battered onion rings are the perfect side for everybody. They go well with all proteins, and even make a delightful snack all on their own.
2 large onions, sliced to your preferred thickness/thinness
1 egg, beaten
1 cup of flour
1 cup of milk (or half milk, half water)
1 teaspoon of baking powder
3 tablespoons of our DIY Cajun Seasoning (adjust amount according to taste)
(For plain rings, swop this for 1 teaspoon of salt, and ½ teaspoon of white pepper)
1/3 cup of flour for dredging
Oil for frying
Mix the egg and milk together.
Add the flour, baking powder and seasoning and blend well until smooth.
Dredge the onion slices through the plain flour.
Coat the onion slices well with the batter.
Fry in batches in hot oil until crispy and golden.
Drain cooked rings on paper towels.
Pro tip: We found it much easier to put the batter mix in a zip lock bag, and add the flour dusted rings into the bag. Zip closed, and mix by hand to coat the slices.
