Gluten Free Battered Onion Rings
I don't know about around your gluten-free house, but around mine onion rings are often discussed with longing remembrance and fondness. Tonight i decided to surprise Shawn with some old fashioned onion rings, made gluten-free.
These were DELICIOUS!
I will definitely make these again. There weren't any leftovers.
2 medium yellow onions
1/4 cup sweet rice flour
1/4 cup arrowroot flour
1/4 cup tapioca flour
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/4 cup milk (approx.)
Oil for frying.
Begin by mixing the flours and dry ingredients together in a separate bowl and set aside.
Next, wash and peel the onions, then slice them about 1/2 inch to 1 inch thick. Separate the rings and coat each one in the flour by swirling them around one at a time in the flour mixture and placing on a plate.
Now add the 2 eggs and the milk (not all of milk may be needed) to the flour mixture and whisk until smooth and creamy (add more or less milk as needed). Dunk and coat each onion ring one at a time in the batter then place in the frying pan of oil. Repeat until finished, do not over crowd the pan.
Fry on each side until golden brown, turning once, then remove and drain on paper towels. These were very well received, and devoured immediately.
