Cooking Time



  • 1 large onion, divided into rings
  • Flour of choice, for dredging, as needed
  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 6 tablespoons water (plus more)
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon paprika powder
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, to taste
  • 1 to 2 plates of cornflakes, crumbled (alternatively, you can use breadcrumbs)
  • Plenty of oil to bake


  1. Get three deep plates out. Add the flour and cornflakes onto two of the plates, separately.
  2. For the third plate, add starch, turmeric, paprika powder, garlic powder, pepper, and salt. Next, add the water and mix with a fork. It should be reminiscent of the consistency of scrambled eggs and neither too thin nor too thick.
  3. Place the onion rings first in the starch/water mixture, then in flour, then again in the starch/water mix, and finally into the cornflakes. Be sure to press the cornflakes hard to make a nice crust. (ip: After breading each onion ring, wash your hands, then bread the next one. This makes it easier.
  4. Put plenty of oil in a pan and let it get hot.
  5. Cook onion rings in hot oil for a few minutes. Then remove from the pan, drain on kitchen paper, and serve. They taste amazing hot, lukewarm, or cold.
