These onion rings are super crispy because of the panko and cornmeal coating. They are so addictive. I posted this picture about a month ago on my Instagram account and since some people asked for the recipe, I thought of just placing it here. I made them again today as a topping and side to the burger below which I made for lunch. It has wasabi arugula dressed in a simple vinaigrette, a beef patty, Chili Gouda, chimichurri, a fried egg and topped it with the onion rings. It was so good!
2 medium white onions cut into about 1cm slices
1 cup of Panko
1/2 cup of cornmeal
A good pinch of paprika powder
A good pinch of onion powder
A good pinch of garlic powder
Pinch of cayenne (optional)
1 cup of all-purpose flour
2 eggs, beaten
1 litter of vegetable oil
In a medium bowl, mix the panko with the cornmeal, paprika powder, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and cayenne. In a separate bowl, mix the flour with some salt. Have another bowl ready with the beaten eggs. Have a large cutting board ready to place the onion rings and another one lined with paper towels.
Dip each onion ring in the flour, then in the beaten eggs and finally coat it well in the panko mixture. Repeat for all.
Heat up the vegetable oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, fry the onion rings in batches until they are golden. Then place them in the prepared cutting board to absorb some of the oil. Enjoy while still warm.
