About the Stuffed onion rings recipe
With this Air fried method, it’s finally possible to eat crunchy, crispy onion rings without swimming in oil!
There’s nothing better than an air fryer recipe because it turns out so crispy and is so easy. The air fryer uses less oil, produces fewer calories from fat, and takes less time to use. Why wouldn’t you love it?
But even the deep-fried version is so tasty and crunchy you gonna love it. Once in a while, we can enjoy this delicious snack.
The air fryer version of onion rings looks like a pale imitation of fried onion rings, but this recipe recreates that classic delight in an impressive way.
Onion rings cooked in the air fryer come out incredibly crunchy and crave-worthy, without being laden with fat or calories like deep-fried onions rings.
But if you really want to taste the authentic onion ring flavor then deep-fried will be the best.
These Stuffed onion rings are,
- No eggs
- Freezer friendly
- Crispy and cheesy
- Not greasy
- Yummy delicious!
- 2 Big – Onion (Take out big and small raw rings)
- 1 cup – Mozzarella cheese/ Vegan Mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup – Refined flour
- 1/2 cup – Cornflour
- 1/2 cup – Rice flour
- 1 cup – Panko bread crumbs
- 1/2 tsp – Red chilly powder
Onion – We need a big onion in order to get large rings
Flour – With a simple flour dredge, you add flavor to your onions and also make sure they stay coated. So we took rice flour to make it extra crispy, cornflour to bind well, and any refined or tapioca flour. Take your choice.
Water or vegan milk – Take anything vegan or plain milk or water which will help to stick.
Panko Bread crumbs – Unlike bread crumbs, Panko breadcrumbs are significantly more crunchy when coated. Of course, normal breadcrumbs also work.
Cheese – Take plain mozzarella or vegan mozzarella for that cheese to melt inside onion rings.
Other Seasoning – I used salt to taste and red chilly flakes. You can add a little black pepper powder too.

How To Make Stuffed onion rings recipe Step By Step With Photo:
- Cut onion in round rings. Take out onion rings. Cut as shown here.
- Take a hand full of cheese and roll.
- Put cheese inside the onion rings. Fill with cheese. Put a small onion ring inside. Prepare all onion rings in the same way.
- In a bowl, add refined flour, cornflour, rice flour, red chilly powder, salt, and water.
- Make a smooth batter. Keep it aside.
- Dip cheese onion ring in the batter.
- Then coat it with panko. Again dip in the batter then again coat in panko.
- For the air-fry method, put them in the air fry basket and spray oil on onion rings.
- Air fry at 380° F for 20 to 25 minutes till golden brown on all sides.
- For the stovetop method, deep fry them in hot oil till golden brown.
- Take them out once they are golden brown. It’s okay if cheese oozes out a little bit.

Important Suggestion To Keep In Mind
- You will get the golden brown crunchy coating on the onion rings if you use an air fryer. Be sure to spray the rings with cooking spray thoroughly to get a nice golden brown finish.
- Depending on the type of cooking spray you use, you may need to spray the coated onion rings first on a baking sheet before placing them in the air fryer basket.
- Make sure you do not overcrowd the air fryer so the onion rings cook evenly. Especially if you’re doubling a recipe, it might take more than two batches of air fryers. When a batch is ready, serve it or keep it warm in the oven.
- Make two separate mixtures of panko breadcrumbs. After the battered ring mixture gets sticky, it’s best to half it, then add the dry mixture when the first part begins to get sticky.
- Spices other than paprika can be used instead of paprika. Cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and chili powder are all good choices.
- The onion rings won’t need to be rotated while they’re cooking because they’ll cook evenly without it.
For leftover onion rings, room temperature is best. If you want to freeze or reheat them later, divide them into portion-sized pieces and store them separately in a bag or container.
Additionally, they can be frozen. To freeze them, allow them to cool completely in the bag and then seal them. Consider placing parchment paper or a paper towel between them to prevent them from sticking.
Place the onions on aluminum foil and place them in the preheated oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit, keeping them covered. The onions should be baked for 10 minutes.
Air fryer onion rings are an excellent addition to fluffy pancakes, crepes, or sandwiches made with fluffy pancake batter. The sauces can be topped with whatever sauce you prefer or they can even be added to sandwiches.
Make sure to eat the onion rings when you make them, but if you make too many, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for two to three days.
