Good news and a recipe (Onion rings)

I have been on break once again. Well, you must be thinking that this has become a routine for me to go on break every now and then. Actually, the good news is that we are blessed with a baby boy on July 3rd and I am still in the process of recovering from the C-Section. Thats on the personal front and coming to recipe, it is always a challenge for me to provide a snack for my husband daily when he returns from office. I am always in hunt for something new. Until I came to USA, I only knew about ullipai pakodi (onion pakodi). Only after coming here I got introduced to this new variety with onion called Onion Rings. I was pretty impressed with taste and texture. When I researched for recipe I came to know that it has egg in the recipe and I once again had a challenge to replace it with something else. I successfully made eggless onion rings and here is the recipe:


For the batter:

1/3 cup Self rising flour (you may use all purpose flour)
2 tbsp corn meal (you may also use rice flour, I did not have any in hand, so I used corn meal)
a pinch of pepper powder
salt as per taste
red chilli powder as per taste

For the Coating:
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 Big Onion ( I used yellow onion)
Oil to fry

1. To make the batter mix all the ingredients with just enough water to make a smooth paste. It should not be too thin or pouring consistency. When you dip onion rings in the batter it should be able to make slightly thick coating.

2. Mix bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, oregano and garlic powder together and keep it ready.

3. Slice onion into 1/4" rings.

4. Heat oil in a wide pan.

5. Dip each ring in the batter first, then into the bread crumbs mixture and fry them in the hot oil.

Thats it hot hot crispy onion rings are ready to be served. I served them with some tomato ketch up.

I made these, exact to the recipe, although i guess my measurment of ingrediants would have been differnt, but I didnt like them..

Hima said...

Sorry about that! well I posted it here for the main reason that it is an alternative to the regular egg recipe. Also that point is not everyone will like everything. So the one that I liked may not be good for you. But thanks for dropping by and trying it.

I arrived here because I searched eggless onion rings. (I'm out of eggs)

Tried it, adjusted the seasonings to my own taste, and they turned out great. Thanks. :)
