  • 3 large onions cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk or as needed
  • 1 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 cups oil for frying or as needed


  • Peel and cut the onions into rings, carefully separate them, set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, and salt.
  • Dip the onion slices into the flour mixture until they are all coated and set aside on a cutting board.
  • Next, using a fork, whisk the egg and milk into the flour mixture.
  • Add the Panko breadcrumbs to a shallow dish, set aside.
  • Dip the floured rings into the batter to fully coat, place on a wire rack to drain until the batter stops dripping.
  • Heat the oil in a deep-fryer or large pan to 365 degrees F.
  • Dip the onion rings one at a time into the Panko crumbs, getting the crumbs all over the ring to coat.
  • Deep fry the rings a few at a time for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Drain excess oil by placing them on the wire rack after frying.
  • Season with salt if needed, and serve.
