About this recipe: Crispy coated onion rings, just like you'd get in a restaurant when you order a steak!


Serves: 3 

  • 1 large onion, cut into 1cm slices
  • 155g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 235ml milk, or as needed
  • 80g breadcrumbs
  • seasoning salt of your choice (optional)
  • 1 litre oil for frying, or as needed

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 185 degrees C (365 degrees F).
  2. Separate the onion slices into rings; set aside. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. Dip the onion slices into the flour mixture until they are all coated; set aside. Whisk the egg and milk into the flour mixture using a fork. Dip the floured rings into the batter to coat, then place on a wire rack to drain until the batter stops dripping. The wire rack may be placed over a sheet of foil for easier clean up. Spread the breadcrumbs out on a plate or shallow dish. Place rings one at a time into the crumbs, and scoop the crumbs up over the ring to coat. Give it a hard tap as you remove it from the crumbs. The coating should cling very well. Repeat with remaining rings.
  4. Deep fry the onion rings a few at a time for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove and set on kitchen paper to drain. Season with seasoning salt and serve.
