  • 1 Large onion
  • 1 Cup of flour
  • 3/4 Cup sparkling water
  • Black pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon paprika
  • 1 Cup breadcrumbs
  • Dried parsley

Strip the onions and cut them into rounds at least half an inch thick.
Pull the rings apart from each other by applying gentle pressure while avoiding breaking them.
Next prepare the batter. In a bowl put the flour, paprika, black pepper and mix well.Pour cold sparkling water in a trickle and with a whisk mix well until a smooth batter forms.
In another bowl, pour the breadcrumbs and season with salt, pepper and dried parsley.
Dip the rings first in the batter, helping with tongs or a fork, then in breadcrumbs. Make sure to cover the entire onion ring with the breadcrumbs. Continue in this way until all the rings are finished.
Preheat the air fryer to 350°F for 2 minutes. Using some spray oil, or a kitchen brush, spray or brush the base of the air fryer basket, and place the onion rings, being careful not to overlap them.
Cook in the air fryer at 370°F (190°C) for 10 minutes or until your preferred golden brown.
Serve hot with a sprinkle of salt and your favorite sauce.
