Their addictive crunch is incredible, and they cook up quickly without becoming greasy. The perfect amount of seasoning elevates the experience, making them a delicious and convenient snack.

While the recipe varies with new geographical locations, batter-coated deep fried onions have a special place in our hearts.

Onion rings are one of the most ordered sides around the globe and a lot of frozen varieties are now available in India as well. After trying onion rings from ITC and Keventer, we got our hands on the newly launched McCain Onion Rings.

Review Process

You can cook these rings using various methods like deep frying, air frying and baking in an oven. We chose to deep fry these. Deep-frying is a breeze, with no thawing required. Ensure your oil is hot enough to prevent excessive oil absorption.

We noticed that these are quick cooking and took less than 3 minutes to become golden brown.

Our Experience With McCain Onion Rings

The star of the show is the texture. The batter delivers an exceptionally satisfying crunch that holds well even as these cool slightly. Forget soggy rings, these maintain their addictive crispness.

Flavor-wise, the seasoning is spot-on, allowing the prominent onion taste to come through. While not the classic whole-ring style, the chopped onion bits still deliver. These are not too spicy and are seasoned well. 

We paired it with ketchup and hot sauce, which was a winning combo, but feel free to experiment.

Overall, a delicious and convenient snack, perfect for those seeking a satisfying crunch.
