Onion rings in 3 steps to celebrate 4th of July

To celebrate the 4th of July, we'll bring you a super tasty and traditional american recipe: onion rings. It's a very simple, easy and fast recipe, and it will be most appreciated by your guests for the 4th of July. We've drawn inspiration for this recipe from Jamie Oliver magazine, we loved how they changed the original recipe, and so we've moved just a little bit forward, modifying this recipe just a little bit more. In this recipe onion rings will result crispy and tastier than the usual ones. The first time this recipe was mentioned was in a 1910 Daily Times issue published in Middletown, NY. The restaurand chain Pig Stand affirms anyway to have invented the original recipe in the 1920s. We do not know which one version is the truthful one, what is sure is that is a very american recipe. The following recipe is perfect for about 5 to 6 people, so if you have more or less people, then modify the quantities according your guests' appetite! 


- 3 golden or white onions 
- 100 g all purpose flour 
- 300 ml or so of buttermilk (you can easily do it at home)
- 300 g of cornstarch
- 1 Tbsp of sweet pimenton (a spanish product, you can replace it with paprika)
- sunflower or olive oil
- salt & pepper to taste


1) Cut the onion into rings into 3 or 4 mms slices the night before you cook them in order to let them dry well. 

2) Prepare three bowls, in the first one put the all purpose flour, in the second one put the buttermilk*, and in the third one put the cornstarch along with salt and pepper and the sweet pimenton (or paprika if you can't find this spanish delight). Meanwhile, put a pan on high heat with enough oil to fry.

3) Pass the onion ring through the first bowl containing all purpose flour, then for the butermilk one and at last dip them into the cornstarch. Fry the onion rings until they becomes golden brown, for about one minute or so. Remember to turn them upside down to fry them homogeneously. Take them out of the frying pan and let them dry a bit over a kitchen paper and eat them with your favourite sauce. 

Happy 4th of july to all americans and friends of America worldwide!



* You can find buttermilk in big retail stores, but you can easily do it at home squeezing a lemon into some milk and let it rest for about 10 minutes or so. In this way you'll have your own buttermilk almost immediately!
