Ingredients

  • 3 large onions, cut into 1/2-inch rings
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 
  • Vegetable oil, for frying 
  • 1 cup cornstarch 
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne 
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder 
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder 
  • 2 teaspoons paprika 
  • Kosher salt 
  • 2 cups milk 
  • 1 1/2 cups seltzer 
  • 1 large egg 
  • Ketchup, for dipping 

Directions

Separate the onions into rings and put in a large bowl. Toss with 1/2 cup of the flour and let stand for 5 minutes.

Put 1 1/2 inches of vegetable oil into a large, wide pot over medium-high heat. Heat the oil to 365 degrees F on a deep-fry thermometer.

In a large bowl, whisk the remaining 3 cups flour together with the cornstarch, cayenne, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika and a big pinch of kosher salt. Add the milk, seltzer and egg and whisk to combine.

Add a couple handfuls of the onion rings to the batter and immediately place in the hot oil. Fry, turning once, until crisp and golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Return the oil to 360 degrees and repeat with as many batches as necessary until all the onions are fried.

Serve with ketchup for dipping.
