Corn Flake Onion Rings [Vegan, Gluten-Free]
- 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
- Get three deep plates out. Add the flour and cornflakes onto two of the plates, separately.
- 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.
- 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.
- Put plenty of oil in a pan and let it get hot.
- 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.
