Restaurant Style Onion rings - Friendship 5 Series - Step by step

In the "Fast food - Kids friendly " series. onion rings play a big role. I tried onion ring
s with red oinons, but satisfaction was met using white onions. White onions has that perfect texture, it glides in mouth ,when we prepare onion rings.Previously, I prepared onion rings, without eggs. But  it didn't coat the onions well. So the next time, I used egg,it coated onion very well. To my surprise, onion rings came out too good. From then I decided not buy onion rings from shop.  Its too good and easy to prepare at home. We can also bake the onion rings in oven. But will you ?

1.Yogurt - 1/2 cup
2.Water  - 1/4 cup
3.All purpose flour - 1/2 cup
4.Baking powder - 1/4 tsp
5 Chilli powder - a pinch (optional)
6.Salt - as needed
7.Pepper powder - 1/4 tsp
8.Egg - 1
9.Bread crumbs - 1/2 cup
10.White onion - 1

* White onion is very  apt for onion rings.I have tried onion rings with red onion,it did not taste like the restaurant.So always use white onions to get a restairant style onion rings.Take white onion, peel the skin and slice it into 1/4 inch thickness, as shown in the picture.Take all purpose flour and baking powder in a plate. Mix them well,for the baking powder to combine with the flour.Dust the onions in the flour mixture and arrange them on a wire rack.Baking powder, gives a flaky texture to the rings.
* Take a bowl, add the flour mixture ,which is remaining after flouring the rings. Add beaten yogurt,egg,water, chilli powder,salt and pepper powder. Form a smooth paste out of it. Eggs acts as a binding agent, so don't skip it. Its the reason, we get a thick crust on the onion.I tried to skip the egg once, but it resulted in a thin coated onion rings.So egg is must.Sorry Vegarian friends :(
* Take the batter in a bowl. Dip the floured oninon rings into  the batter. Coat them well using a spoon. Let the excess batter drip , by keeping them on a wire rack.Leave it for while.
* Now coat the banttered onion rings with bread crumbs.Again let  them set on a wire rack.Mean   while, heat a pan of oil.
* Fry the onions in medium hot oil. Flip them around to get a golden brown onion ring.Strain the onion rings on a plate covered with paper towel.Serve it with ketchup or mayonnise.See who is stealing a onion ring. Yes. Its Ashwath. Ashwath and me gobbled the whole plate within minutes :)

* For a perfect onion ring, use white onions .
* Baking powder gives a flaky texture to the onino rings, so don't skip it.
* Fry the onions in medium hot oil, if not the rings will burn quickly.
* We can also add some salt and pepper powder to the bread crumbs to give a punch.
