Onion rings

                                Onion ring is one of the famous fast food in US . I have heard about this snack through internet,but recently when i was in family trip,we stopped for a break near the shop name " Ar by's ". Being a vegetarian, i don't had much option to choose.I was bored of having french fries and hash brown,So i ordered onion rings seeing the menu. When i tasted it first time, it taste like Indian onion bhaji but with crispy outer layer.The outer layer is crunchy and inner onions are hot and soft.My husband suggest me to try this dish . My 3 1/2 year old son,initially hesitate to taste it but once he tasted it,he like the crunchy texture.I was so satisfied in preparing a snack which my son like it.


Yellow onion - 1
All purpose flour(Maida) - 1 cup
Corn starch - 3 tbsp
Chili powder - 1 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Smashed potato - 1 tbsp(optional)
Baking soda - a pinch
Bread crumbs - 1 cup
Onion powder - 1/2 tsp (optional)

* Cut the onion 1/2 inch thick cross-sectional wise,separate into rings.

1.Take a bowl,add all-purpose flour,cornstarch,chili powder,salt ,smashed potato,baking soda,1/4 cup bread crumbs and onion powder.Mix well. Add enough water and mix well. The consistency should be semi liquid.
2.Take bread crumbs in a bowl.
3. Take onion rings in a plate.
4. Take one onion ring,dip it in all-purpose flour mix . Tap once in corner of the bowl ,to remove excess liquid. Now slowly place the onion rings in bread crumbs bowl. Take the bowl in hand and move it right and left,front and back ,so that the bread coats well on onion ring.Prepare all onion rings like this and place it in a plate.
5. Heat a pan with enough oil and once it is medium heat,slowly drop the onion rings using fork into the oil. Fry 2 or 3 onion rings at a time.When one side is cooked,turn to other side and cook. Cook till the onion ring turns yellowish color.
Serve with any sauce of your preference.

* Instead of adding baking soda,we can add drinking soda to prepare the batter.
* Uisng the same batter we can prepare mozzarella sticks and cheese balls.
* Those who don't have bread crumbs in home, can powder plain corn flakes and use as a coating.
