Baked Crispy Onion Rings

 For Blog Hop Wednesday this month, I am paired with Harini of Tamalapaku and among all the variety of dishes that are there on her blog, I chose these Baked Crispy Onion Rings. To know more about Blog Hop Wednesdays check this. To see what other blog hoppers are up with see this.

Ingredients:
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.

Notes:
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.

Thank you for stopping by! Cheers!

Mango Mania ~ Mango Lassi/ Mango Smoothie!

Lassi is a yogurt based drink from Punjab, India. It can be either sweet or salted or flavoured with fruit. It is usually served chilled as a refreshment during summer days. Mango being in season, this Mango Lassi is currently at the top of my drink list. It is best to use ripe, sweet Alphonso mangoes when available or you can use canned mango pulp as well. I prefer to use fresh mangoes.



Mango is a nutritionally very rich fruit. Read this to know the benefits of this exotic tropical fruit. Coming back to the recipe, here is what you will need to blend a yummy Mango Lassi.

Ingredients:

Flesh of 1 ripe mango chopped.
150 ml low fat yogurt.
150 ml water
2 cardamom pod seeds freshly powdered.
Sugar to taste.
Ice cubes (Optional)


Process:

Add all the ingredients in a blender and churn till smooth. Sieve it to remove any fibre and adjust the sugar as per your taste and the sweetness of mango. Serve chilled. It like it reasonably thick, add more water if you like thinner.
