 Ingredients List

  • 2 lb Onions; cut into 1/4-inch
  • -slices & separated into
  • -rings
  • 1/2 c Unsifted all purpose flour
  • Vegetable oil for deep-fat
  • -frying
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/4 ts Ground red pepper
  • 1/4 ts Ground cumin
  • 1/4 ts Chili powder


NOTE: Restaurants fry their onion rings in metal baskets so the onions will
assume that shape-either loaves or mounds. If you have a round frying
basket, use that to fry the onions. If not, just fry them in batches and
mound on the plate afterward.

In large plastic food storage bag, toss half of the onion rings and half of
the flour until well mixed.

Heat oven to 200F. Line a baking sheet with paper towels. In a 4-quart pan,
heat 2 inches oil to 350F on a deep fat thermometer. In a cup, mix salt,
red peppr, cumin and chili powder.

Drop floured onions rings, a handful at a time, in hot oil. (Do not fry too
much at a time because the oil wil bubble up.) Fry, turning them once,
until crisp and lightly browned-about 2 minutes. Drain onions on paper
towels and transfer to paper-lined baking sheet. Repeat to fry remaining
floured onions. Sprinkle fried onions lightly with half of salt mixture and
place in oven to keep warm.

Toss remaining onions with remaining flour. Fry onions as above and
sprinkle with remaining salt mixture. After all onions are fried, mound
them high on a small serving plate.
