Air Fryer Recipe - Onion Rings

Crispy Air Fried Onion Rings are perfectly seasoned, dipped in batter, dredged in panko breadcrumbs and then cooked to crispy perfection in the Enhans Air Fryer! These faux-fried onion rings are tender on the inside and so crisp on the outside, just how we love them. They make such a great healthy and delicious snack. Check out the recipe here!


*60 g all-purpose flour

*1 tsp paprika

*1 tsp salt, divided

*120ml buttermilk

*1 egg

*60g panko

*2 tbsp cooking oil

*1 large yellow sweet onion, sliced 1/2-inch thick and separated into rings

*Oil Spray, optional


*Prepare 4 shallow bowls or deep plates. 

*In the first one combine flour, paprika, and ½ tsp salt.

*In the second combine buttermilk and egg, then add 30gram of the flour mixture from the first bowl.

*In the third combine panko breadcrumbs, ½ tsp salt and cooking oil with a fork, until the oil is evenly distributed.

*Put half of the panko in a fourth bowl so you can switch to the second part after the first got sticky.

*Using a fork, dredge the onion rings in the flour mixture, drop them in the buttermilk mixture and then dredge them in the panko mixture.

*Preheat the air fryer at 200 Celcius.

*Spray air fryer Basket with oil spray.

*Place onion rings in a single layer in the air fryer basket. You can place smaller rings inside bigger rings if necessary, just make sure there is space between them.

*Cook at 200 Celcius until golden brown and crispy, about 11-15 minutes. *Spray with some cooking oil after about 6 minutes. You do not need to turn the onion rings.

*Carefully lift out the onion rings with a cookie spatula or fork and serve.


*This recipe is messy but well worth the effort.

*If you do not have panko breadcrumbs, you could also use normal breadcrumbs, but the result might not be as crispy.

*Divide the panko breadcrumb mixture in two so you can switch to the second batch after the first gets sticky.

*Use a fork and not your hands

*If you do not have buttermilk, you can easily make your own by adding 1 tbsp of vinegar or lemon/lime juice to 120ml milk.

*Be careful when lifting the onion rings out of the basket! I recommend using a cookie spatula or fork to lift them out.
