Crispy Homemade Onion Rings

2 large onions, sliced into rings
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup milk
Vegetable oil, for frying
Bread crumbs or panko for coating
Prepare the Onions:
Peel the onions and cut them into rings. Separate the rings and set aside.
Make the Batter:
In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
In another bowl, beat the egg, and then add the milk. Mix well.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring until you have a smooth batter.
Coat the Onion Rings:
Dip each onion ring into the batter, making sure it’s well coated.
Allow any excess batter to drip off.
Bread Crumb Coating:
Roll the battered onion ring in the bread crumbs or panko, ensuring an even coating. Press the crumbs onto the onion rings for better adherence.
Heat the Oil:
In a deep fryer or a heavy-bottomed pot, heat vegetable oil to 350°F (175°C).
Fry the Onion Rings:
Carefully place the coated onion rings into the hot oil, a few at a time, to avoid overcrowding.
Fry until the onion rings are golden brown, usually 2-3 minutes per side.
Drain and Serve:
Use a slotted spoon to remove the onion rings from the oil and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil.
Serve Warm:
Serve the crispy homemade onion rings immediately while they are still hot and crispy.
Optional: Serve with your favorite dipping sauce, such as ketchup, mayonnaise, or a tangy aioli.
Enjoy your delicious homemade crispy onion rings!
