Course Snack


  • 1 onion
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper powder
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp chaat masala
  • 1/2 tsp ginger-garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Oil for frying


  • Cut the onions into 5-7 mm thick slices. Separate the rings from each other.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, take all-purpose flour, black pepper powder, red chilli powder, chaat masala powder, ginger-garlic powder and salt. Give it a mix.
  • Dip the onion slices into the flour mixture. Once coated, keep them aside.
  • In a clean bowl, take an egg.
  • Whisk it.
  • In the flour mixture, add baking powder. Mix it thoroughly.
  • Add the dry mixture to the egg. Add milk and make a smooth batter.
  • Dip the floured onion ring into the batter. Shake off the excess.
  • Dip it into the breadcrumbs. Evenly coat the ring. Give a gentle tap to remove the excess crumbs.
  • Repeat the same procedure for the rest of the rings and keep them aside.
  • Heat oil in a wok over a medium flame. Lower the flame and add the onion rings. Deep fry for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Take them out on an absorbent paper to drain off the excess oil.
  • Serve them hot with tomato ketchup.


In the recipe, I have used whole wheat breadcrumbs. But you can use white breadcrumbs if you want.
