Spread the love

Are you looking for a simple onion rings recipe that doesn’t feature thick skin? Well, check out onion rings recipe here.

When I was a kid, my sisters use to cook onion rings and I love ’em. I love the crunchy breading and then unexplainable spice of the onion. I chow down a plate in just a couple of minutes, especially when dipped on tomato catsup.

As I grow up and having lesser time to cook and crave a lot, I used to buy onion rings from fast-food chains. To be honest, the experiences are disappointing. The breading is ten times the onion and it’s somehow annoying. The doughy skin overpowers the flavor.

So whenever I crave for it, I treat myself. However, not by buying but by making it. So, here’s my onion rings recipe featuring thin and less breading.

Onion rings 2


  • 1 large red onion – peel and slice sideways to make rings.
  • 2 cups of flour
  • salt and ground pepper
  • water
  • oil

Make the Batter

  1. Mix about 1 1/2 flour and water. For this recipe, the batter is loose. It’s like a cream at room temperature.
  2. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Let it rest in the refrigerator.

Fry the Onion Rings

  • Sprinkle flour on the chopped onion and let it rest for a couple of minutes.
  • Put the onion ring in the batter and make sure they are fully covered.
  • Fry over high heat.
  • Serve and enjoy.

Onion Rings


  • If you opt for thick-skinned onion rings, you can just make the batter thick as if you are about to cook a pancake. You may also add a little baking powder to add some fluff.
  • I prefer red onion because of the stronger aroma. You may use the white ones.
  • This onion rings recipe is best served immediately. Otherwise, the onion will moist and you’ll end up with soggy onion rings.
