Thanks, Neal Brothers, for my latest addiction.
One of seven flavours of Neal Brothers kettle chips, these were made in collaboration with Vikram Vij, owner of Vij’s award-winning Indian restaurant in Vancouver and former Dragon on CBC’s Dragon’s Den. They are, wait for it…Delhi-licious! Full of flavour and spice and salty lick-your-fingers goodness, they’re so tasty that I’m eating them right now as I type this at 11:51 pm.
Not to mention versatile. Besides being an outstanding choice of munchie, they can also play a supporting role in quick and tasty meals. Crush them up and use instead of breadcrumbs for coating chicken or fish. Or crumble them on top of casseroles. Because they’re already flavoured with natural Indian spices, and a hint of mango sweetness, you can skip the spice cabinet.
These crispy onion rings are super easy to make and will satisfy your cravings (because, come on, when’s the last time you had an onion ring?).
Delhi-licious Onion Rings
(recipe courtesy of Neal Brothers Foods)
1 package of Vij’s Delhi-licious chips
1/4 cup of corn meal
1 cup of buttermilk
2 large Spanish onions
Set rack in the top third of oven and preheat to 450ºF.
Slice onions into 1/2-inch-thick rings.
Pulse chips and cornmeal in a food processor to form a fine flour. Pour into a mixing bowl.
Pour buttermilk into another bowl. Dip 1-2 rings at a time in buttermilk first, then press crumb mixture firmly into each ring (if it’s not sticking well, sprinkle some gluten-free flour into the crumb mixture).
Place coated onions on a parchment-lined baking sheet in a single layer and bake for 15 minutes. You may need to do 2-3 batches at a time.
Serve with Neal Brothers Lime Mayo for dipping (also tastes amazing on BBQ’d corn on the cob, see below!).
