I wasn’t expecting these to be as good as they were, but I was well pleased with how these turned out in the end.
I quite like onion rings and if I am out and about eating out (well when I could) I would often add some onion rings to my meal. Though I have tried various shop frozen onion rings, I haven’t found any that I would say are fantastic. Also not seen any gluten free ones either.
This is a relatively simply recipe for making gluten free onion rings.
I took a large brown onion and sliced it thickly across and then separated out the individual rings of onion.
I kept the rest of the onion, diced for another dish.
In a mixing bowl, I whisked up half a cup of gluten free self raising flour with an egg and some milk. Adding more milk until you have a batter which will coat and stick to the onion.
Now if you have a deep fat fryer you could use that, I don’t have one so I didn’t.
I took my large frying pan and shallow fried the onion rings in hot oil a minute or so on each side until the batter was cooked and a golden brown.
The end result was beautifully crisp onion rings, the batter had an excellent crunch, they had a succulent taste of onion on the inside. Unlike some I have had these weren’t greasy either, which I often think is a result of cooking rings twice.
We will certainly make these again, as they were probably the best onion rings I have ever cooked and to be honest the best I have ever tasted.
