Battered onion rings are a great side for burgers or hot dogs, they also make for ideal party snacks. Our ground cumin imparts a deep smoky, rich flavor on the onions and pairs well with any dipping sauce.
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 15 min
Total time: 25 min
4 Cups Neutral Frying Oil
2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1 Tablespoon Ground Cumin
1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Cornstarch
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cayenne Pepper
2 Cups Beer
2 Large Onions, peeled and cut into 1/2" slices
Heat the oil in a Dutch oven or other larger heavy pot to 375° F.
In a medium bowl whisk the dry ingredients together and slowly add the the beer. Whisk the mixture briskly to remove lumps. If the batter is thicker than pancake batter add a little water to thin the consistency.
Separate the onion slices into rings. Dunk each ring individually in the batter, drain off excess and place into the hot oil. Use a chopstick or a fork to flip the ring over after 20-30 seconds. Fry until both sides are golden and crisp, 45-90 seconds should do it. Transfer fried onions to a rack placed over paper towels to wick up the excess oil. Serve immediately.
