Onion rings are popular at just about any time of day, but why not try these home-made ones for extra tastiness. The onion rings are coated in a mixture of paprika and flour, then dipped in breadcrumbs for extra crunch.
They’re quick and very easy to make – why not whip up a batch on your next steak night?
Rinse the onion and cut into approximately ¼ inch rings. Carefully separate the rings from each other*.
Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and paprika in a medium bowl.
Coat each onion ring in the flour mixture and set aside
Combine the remaining flour mixture that you coated the onions in with the milk, egg, and salt, and beat well until no lumps remain.
Coat each onion ring in the above mixture and shake away the excess
Coat each onion ring in breadcrumbs
Fry the onion rings in a fryer or a large, heavy duty pot. Put the rings on a plate with kitchen roll to absorb any excess oil, then plate and serve with ketchup or other dips.
*Large white or yellow onions tend to be the best for this recipe.
*You don’t need to throw away the smaller rings – seal them well in a bag and keep in the fridge for using in other recipes that need onions.
