Home Made Fried Onion Rings


Homemade fried onion rings are a delicious and satisfying snack or side dish. Here’s a simple recipe for you to try:


  • 2 large onions, sliced into rings
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Breadcrumbs or panko crumbs for coating (optional for extra crispiness)


  1. Preparation:
    • Peel and slice the onions into rings, separating them.
    • In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Batter:
    • In another bowl, whisk the egg, and then add the buttermilk. Mix well.
    • Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients, stirring until you have a smooth batter.
  3. Soak the Onion Rings:
    • Place the onion rings in the buttermilk batter, ensuring they are well coated.
    • Allow the onions to soak in the batter for at least 30 minutes. This helps the batter adhere better.
  4. Coating:
    • If you want an extra crispy texture, you can dip the soaked onion rings in breadcrumbs or panko crumbs.
  5. Frying:
    • Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or a large, deep skillet to 350-375°F (175-190°C).
    • Carefully place the coated onion rings into the hot oil. Fry in batches to avoid overcrowding.
    • Fry until the rings are golden brown, turning them once to ensure even cooking. This typically takes 2-3 minutes per side.
  6. Draining:
    • Use a slotted spoon or tongs to remove the fried onion rings and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.
  7. Serve:
    • Serve the homemade fried onion rings hot. You can pair them with your favorite dipping sauces, such as ketchup, ranch dressing, or a spicy aioli.

Enjoy your delicious homemade fried onion rings! They make a great appetizer, side dish, or even a tasty snack.
