How to Make Batter for Onion Rings
Onion rings have a crispy coating often created with a batter.

Onion rings are a common fast food item that are usually covered in a breading or batter and deep-fried. When you make an onion ring batter at home, the proper consistency is crucial for a crispy finished product. It is wise to eat any deep-fried foods on only an occasional basis, as the extra fat and calories may result in weight gain.
