Directions

Heat the oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees F.

In a small bowl, mix together the flour, cayenne pepper, some salt and pepper, the egg and soda water. Before dipping the onion rings, add some ice cubes to keep the mixture very cold.

Dip the separated onion slices into the batter until they are all coated and set aside. Repeat with the remaining rings.

Deep fry the rings, a few at a time, until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove to paper towels to drain. Season with salt and pepper and serve.

Cook's Note: Ice makes the batter cold and that makes it better for frying.

    The first time I made perfect onion rings! I didn't have seltzer water so I put a tablespoon of baking soda into the batter and used ice water. The batter held up and my family was thrilled. My husband and I agree the you are the best chef on TV with the most original recipes! Keep 'em coming!
    Thanks Chuck

    these are absolutely PHENOMENAL! and so easy!
    I made my batter just a pinch thicker than Chuck's, and no cayenne, but the rest the same, and they're SO good!
    Restaurant quality, light, flaky, the onion is tender and almost gone, but lightly sweet and SO tasty. I've never made a review like this lol
    I'm so happy to have found a great onion ring recipe since a restaurant with my favorite to-go onion rings closed!
    Make sure your oil is HOT enough though.
