|If you are looking for a gluten-free snack that hits the spot, then this is the recipe for you. Ground chickpea flour is a great alternative to all purpose flour, especially for those with gluten allergies. The batter is slightly sweet and nutty with a hint of smoky flavor, which tastes great with a little sriracha mayo or even just plain old fashioned ketchup. They are also perfect for a game day party on the weekend or just sharing them with a friend with an ice cold beer.
For the Cilantro Lime Mayo Dipping Sauce
In a large deep pot or dutch oven, pour in enough oil to completely submerge the onion rings, about 2-4 inches. Heat oil over medium/high heat to 365ºF . You can also test oils readiness by dropping an onion ring into the oil. If the bagttered covered onion ring immediately bubbles and begins to fry, turning a golden brown, then the oil is ready. If not, wait a few minutes and try again.
In a large mixing bowl whisk together chickpea flour,baking powder, garlic salt, paprika, pepper and water. Set aside to thicken to the consistency of a thick pancake batter.
While the onions ares still hot and draining on the paper towels, sprinkle of with a dusting of Creole seasoning. Serve with cilantro mayonnaise or your favorite condiment.
