Can I Store the Leftover Onion Rings and Make This Spicy Onion Ring Recipe Ahead of Time?
Onion rings are a food that is best served freshly fried. But still, If you want to make it in advance or make a larger batch of this spicy onion ring recipe, you can freeze them.
You can coat the onion rings in the bread crumbs, freeze them in a freezer bag until you use them. It would be best if you could do it a day in so the flavor won’t change.
Thaw the frozen onion rings entirely before throwing them into the deep fryer. In addition to this, you may also store any leftover onion rings in the freezer. You may reheat them in hot oil for a few seconds before serving. Putting them in the microwave can result in sogginess. Therefore, we do not recommend microwaving onion rings as a good reheating option.
Once the rings have finished frying, remove them from the oil using a pair of tongs or a slotted spoon. You can also use a small iron strainer. After letting them drain the excess oil on a lined plate for a few seconds, arrange them onto a wire rack over a baking sheet. This is important to preserve the crispness of your onion rings.
When stored in a freezer bag or a well-fitting container, you may keep the onion rings fresh and flavorful for about three days. But it would be best to consume the onion rings as soon as possible since they will lose their freshness over time.
Since we have used all-purpose flour, oil, and panko bread crumbs when making this recipe, it is not very favorable to those who follow a strict ketogenic or low-carb diet plan. But it is totally up to you and is harmless to munch on one or two if you don’t mind little carbs on your diet!
We have used an egg in our recipe which is the only ingredient that makes this onion ring recipe unsuitable for a vegan diet. But, those who prefer a vegan-friendly version of this recipe can simply skip the egg and follow up.
