1 Large Onion sliced in rings. I used the white variety.
For the coating batter
2-3 tbsp AP Flour
1 tsp corn flour
A generous pinch of salt
1/4 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup water
For coating the onion rings
Bread Crumbs, as needed (I used 2 multigrain bread slices, toasted them and churned them to crumbs)
1 tsp oil
1/4 tsp Italian dried mixed herbs
1. Preheat the oven at 200-220 C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Set aside.
2. Mix all the ingredients for making the batter and add water and whisk till there is no lump.
3. Mix the bread crumbs, seasoning and oil and rub with your fingers.
4. Dip a onion ring in the batter and then coat it with the crumbs and place them in the lined baking tray. Do the same with all the onion rings.
5. Bake them for 15 minutes, turning them once after 7-8 minutes to ensure they are uniformly crisp.
6. Serve with tomato ketchup or sweet chili sauce or enjoy with a cup of tea.
1. I used multigrain bread crumbs as I had them at hand. But, I think using regular bread crumbs will be better for taste.
2. Instead of bread crumbs, I think coarse semolina should also work fine.
3. Do not slice the onion too think or they will burn while baking.
Only disadvantage of this recipe is that, one has to be patient while making them. It is simple enough but baking the rings is time consuming. But, on the brighter side, they are really low fat and you don't have to worry about having eaten too much of them.
