Baked Cornmeal Onion Rings

I couldnt stop myself making some more onion rings,sorry guys if am boring you all once again with some guilt free baked onion rings. This time i went for finely grinded cornmeal,chaat masala and white pepper powder, they came out extremely addictive and quite crispy,delicious and yummy finger food. The addition of chaat masala and white pepper powder gives a fabulous taste to this super crispy onion rings. Definitely this recipe is a keeper for me, am gonna try with different spices later.We enjoyed having these oil-less onion rings with sweet chilly sauce for our evening snacks. This is my second entry to From Fried To Favourite started by Nupur of UK Rasoi.


 2nos Onions (sliced horizontally)
1/4cup Yellow cornmeal (grind finely)
1tsp Chaat masala
3/4tsp White Pepper powder
Salt
3tbsp Corn flour
Oil for brushing

Separate the onions as single rings,meanwhile make a thick paste with corn flour and water with salt. Take the chaat masala,white pepper powder,yellow cornmeal together in a plate.

Now gently dip the onion rings in the corn flour paste and drop immediately, roll them over the spiced cornmeal mixture.

Preheat the oven to 350F,prepare a baking tray lined with a baking sheet, brush the baking sheet with enough oil, now arrange the already prepared cornmeal coated onions rings and bake for 15-20 minutes.

Serve hot with sweet chilly sauce.

Never thought about baking onion rings, always seen them served fried with many condiments... Baked ones look healthy !

I love that you used corn meal. I think it, not only adds crunch, but great flavor, as well.
