I used seltzer water or club soda instead of reg water. I always use in batters for a more lighter, airy outcome

I have finally found the secret for getting onion ring batter to stay on the durn onions while cooking. Simply put the sliced onions in a ziplock baggie and let them sit in cornstarch for an hour or so before cooking! Works every time.

Our family loved this, yum! Has the right amount of salt to no overpower the flavor of the onion. We also used this batter to deep fry fresh green beans, also excellent, seriously!
