Failed: deep fried onion ring for the first time




Failed,

I don't know what I've done wrong

Did I use wrong flour?

You'll have to tell us EXACTLY what you did. Ingredients, recipe, oil temp, cooking vessel, time etc.


The picture doesn't help much.

Looks like you breaded them?
I have had much better luck with a batter. Like beer batter.

3/4 cup AP flour.
1/4 cup corn starch.
1/2 tsp baking powder.
3/4 cup beer.

Allow beer to come to room temp. Open the beer first.
Mix all together with a whisk until smooth.
Allow to sit at room temp for 30 minutes.

Dip onion sliced rings into batter and deep fry until golden brown.

Can I use other flour, instead of AP flour? Is it very improtant?

I've got lots of flour ready but I don't know if they are AP. I don't want to waste them

Is there anyway to do it without baking powder and corn starch??
because I want to avoid using ingredients that cannot be used up in short time, I want to avoid storage because I don't often cook.

Are you worried things will go stale? or do you just not have enough space to store. Neither Corn Starch nor Baking Powder will go stale before you are likely to use them again. You could also buy them in very small quantities at Bulk Barn or some such place.

That could be a reason things don't work out. Keep cooking..you will get better results as you progress...like anything else, you have to work at it...

I agree with CakePoet, oil was probably not hot enough. Did you use a thermometer or just guess? I've been cooking for a LONG time, know my stove and pans, and I can guess for simple small food items that I've made multiple times, but that comes with lots of experience. I still use a thermometer for larger pieces or things that are new to me.
