In British and American cuisine, an onion ring, sometimes known as a French-fried onion ring, is a type of appetizer or side dish. They are made of a cross-sectional "ring" of onion coated in batter or bread crumbs and deep-fried; an onion paste variation is also available.
- ¾ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup cornstarch
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 large onion, cut into rings
- 1 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 1 cup bread crumbs
- cooking spray
- 2 pinches garlic powder
- 2 pinches paprika
In a small mixing basin, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt. Set aside after coating the onion rings with the flour mixture.
With a fork, whisk the milk and egg into the flour mixture. Dip the floured rings into the batter to coat. Place on a wire rack to drain until the batter stops leaking.
In a shallow bowl, put the bread crumbs. Place the rings in the crumbs one at a time, then spread the crumbs over the onion rings to coat evenly. Give them a firm tap when you take the onion rings from the crumbs. The coating should stick quite well. Rep with the remaining onion rings.
Preheat an air fryer to 400°F (200°C). Place the rings in the frying basket side by side. Lightly spray with cooking spray. Place the basket in the air fryer and flip the rings. Air Fry for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the rings are golden brown. Halfway through, flip once more. Sprinkle with garlic powder and paprika after draining on paper towels.
