This is the easiest way of making onion rings with simple ingredients, yet it may be tricky and hence patience is required to get the right rings.

Let’s do it!


  • Always choose big onions, while making rings so that you can have many rings and the shape of your rings will also be big.
  • If you’re a novice cook, you should be bit careful while cutting the rings in circle shape.
  • If you wish to have onion discs avoid removing the center part, but it still gets tricky to turn them or coat them.
  • Batter should be without lumps, otherwise you will end up with rings concentrated and uncooked at one side.
  • Use a fork to move your rings to avoid breakage.
  • Using your hands can be messy and inconvenient.
  • Use a tissue by side to wipe of the batter from the fork.
  • Use a spoon to coat them with breadcrumbs.
  • Always fry them at medium heat.
