    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.

    Looks wonderful, very like the one I use but I was looking for a recipe like this for an air fryer. Any help out there ?

    These have been declared by my husband as a new family staple. He ate a whole onion on his own!

    Light and crispy! Declared a family favorite. Used about 2 medium onions.
