Ingredients

  • 250 ml (1 cup) chickpea flour

  • 5 ml (1 tsp) baking powder

  • 185 ml (¾ cup) sparkling water

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1 large white onion

  • 250 ml (1 cup) oats

  • 2.5 ml (½ tsp) paprika

  • 2.5 ml (½ tsp) onion powder

  • Pepper and salt, to taste

Preparation

  1. In a bowl, mix the flour and baking powder. Incorporate the water and beaten egg.

  2. Cover and refrigerate.

  3. Slice the onion into approximately ½ inch (1 cm) thick rings.

  4. Using an electric mixer, grind the remaining ingredients until they reach a breadcrumb texture. Spread evenly on a plate.

  5. Dip each onion ring into the batter, then into the breadcrumbs, and place in the air fryer basket. Arrange in a single layer.*

  6. Spray with cooking oil and cook on “air fry” mode for about 12 minutes or until the rings are crispy and golden brown. Flip halfway through.

*Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to repeat this step a few times.

Notes

It's best to consume them immediately for maximum flavor and texture.

They can be stored for 5 days at room temperature, in an airtight container. Reheat in the air fryer or oven before serving.
