Onion rings are commonly served as an appetizer or as a complement to burgers, sandwiches, or other main dishes. They are enjoyed for their crunchy texture, savory flavor, and the sweet and tangy taste that comes from the onions when they are cooked. Some people also like to dip onion rings in sauces such as ketchup, barbecue sauce, or ranch dressing to enhance the taste.


  • 2 large onions

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 cup milk (you can also use buttermilk for a tangier flavor)

  • Vegetable oil, for frying


  • Slice the onions: Peel the onions and cut them into thick slices. Separate the slices into rings and set them aside.
  • Prepare the batter: In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and black pepper. Gradually add the milk to the dry ingredients, whisking until you have a smooth batter.
  • Heat the oil: Pour enough vegetable oil into a deep pot or skillet to cover the onion rings. Heat the oil over medium-high heat until it reaches a temperature of about 350°F (175°C). You can test the oil by dropping a small amount of batter into it; if it sizzles and floats to the surface, the oil is ready.
  • Dip the onion rings: Take an onion ring and dip it into the batter, making sure it’s well-coated. Allow any excess batter to drip off, then carefully place the coated onion ring into the hot oil. Repeat this process with a few more onion rings, making sure not to overcrowd the pot.
  • Fry the onion rings: Fry the onion rings for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until they turn golden brown and crispy. Use a slotted spoon or tongs to remove the fried rings from the oil and transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil. Repeat the process with the remaining onion rings.
  • Serve and enjoy: Once the onion rings have drained, they’re ready to be served. You can enjoy them as they are or serve them with your favorite dipping sauce, such as ketchup, barbecue sauce, or ranch dressing.
