Crispy onion rings, which are made by deep-frying battered onions, are a very popular snack worldwide. I love eating them with aioli sauce, which is a Mediterranean sauce made with garlic and olive oil that is often served with fried foods. Let me show you how to make this delicious snack!

Crispy Onion Rings Step-by-Step Procedure

Tips and Techniques

  1. Try making homemade mayonnaise instead of using the store-bought version.
  2. You can make your own crispy batter.
  3. In order to maintain its crispiness, do not cover the onion rings.
  4. Try other dipping sauces, such as tartar sauce.
  5. Adding salt to the garlic while pounding it makes it easier to handle.
  6. Line a plate with paper towels to absorb the excess oil from the fried crispy onion rings.
