HOW TO FRY THE BEST CRUNCHY FRIED ONION RINGS
This post may include affiliate links. Please see my disclosure.
I finally figured out how to get Super Crunchy Fried Onion Rings. What is the secret to making Crunchy Fried Onion Rings?
The secret is… baking powder. The baking powder helps to add a crunch that someone else can hear from across the room when you bite into one of these Crunchy Fried Onion Rings. They are truly that crispy. Bobby Flay fries his fried chickenwith one teaspoon of baking powder to one cup of flour. I decided to try this baking powder and flour mixture secret with my onion rings. The electric fryer I got last year came with recipes from“DADGUM That’s Good, Too!” cookbook. By the way, I highly recommend my electric fryer byMaster Built. The main reason I love this electric fryer is it passed my safety standards. I wrote a blog post about ithere. If you do not have an electric fryer, you can use a large cast iron dutch oven. See a picture of mine here. Add enough oil to the electric fryer or the Dutch Oven to completely cover the all the onion rings. Allow the oil to reach 360 degrees before adding the onion rings to the oil. The temperature will drop after adding the onion rings.
Since baking powder was used in Bobby Flay’s chicken and in “DADGUM, That’s Good, Too!” cookbook, I decided to use it in these onion rings. To keep these Crunchy Fried Onion Rings crunchy while in the fryer, make sure the onions are all cut 1/4 inch thick. If not, they will not cook evenly. Some onions rings will need less time or more time depending on how thick you cut them.
