Our local grocer had big bags of onions for buy one get one free! We’re obsessed with onions and have a plethora now so I figured why not try my hand at onion rings!
Super easy, super cheap and so delicious for a Saturday night (or all nights, cuz onions)
- 1 cup chickpea flour
- 1/2 cup – 3/4 cup water
- Old bay
- Cheap ass oil for frying
- Mix your salt, pepper and old bay to your liking into your chickpea flour. I used about a pinch each of salt and pepper and then a good teaspoon of old bay. You can certainly get creative and use any herbs or spices of your liking!
- Start by adding 1/2 cup of water to your flour mixture. If it’s too thick, add a tbsp at a time until it becomes a good batter consistency. (Watch video for example)
- Let that batter rest while you prep everything else.
- Cut your onions into slices. Save the teeny pieces for other yummy recipes.
- Pour about an inch and a half to two inches worth of your cheap ass oil in a pot and get it hot on the stove on about medium to medium high heat. (350-375 degrees Fahrenheit but I don’t use a thermometer so don’t worry if you don’t have one)
- Once oil is nice and hot, start dipping your onions into the batter until fully coated, make sure to let the express drip off and lightly place into the oil. Be sure not to crowd your pot, do it in batches. They should take about a minute or two on each side until nice and golden brown.
- Using tongs, take the onions rings out when they’re done and place on a plate with paper towels to get the rest of that grease off.
- Serve immediately. You can certainly eat them later but they will start to lose their crispiness.
