It has been forever since we've made onion rings, so I wasn't sure what recipe to use. I found this one, made a few tweeks and here we are!
3 cups (1 cup + 2 cups) flour
1 1/2 cups corn starch
2 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
2 1/2 teaspoons cayenne or 1 /12 teaspoons ancho chili powder
2 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 cups beer
2 cups mineral water or seltzer
oil for frying
Slice several onions into thin to medium slices. Toss the onions with 1 cup of flour and allow them to rest for 30 minutes.
In a separate bowl put all the dry ingredients (minus the flour and onions). Whisk the dry ingredients.
In another bowl mix the liquid ingredients.
Slowly add the dry ingredients into the liquid and mix to combine.
Place a small handful of onion rings in the batter. Fry until the onion rings are a nice golden color. Drain on paper towels and serve. We like ketchup.
