Keto Onion Rings w/ Curry Dip

by hungryelephant

Got a craving for onion rings? Step it up a notch and fry’em with COCONUT. You will not regret and possibly won’t go back to regular onion rings anytime soon. Want to step it up ONE more notch? Make a deeeeelicious curry dipping sauce!

In this video, I go over both methods of cooking these – deep frying and baking in the oven. However, I would recommend frying them because they brown more easily and are much more crispy. I used canola oil to fry’em.

What you will need:


  • 3 medium sized onions
  • 2 eggs
  • ground unsweetened coconut (roughly a cup, give or take)


  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry paste

Begin by cutting your onions into rings – that means you’ll be slicing them between the ends and now from end to end. Make them fairly thick.

Once you’ve cut them all up, dip each ring into your eggs, which should be cracked & lightly beaten. Make sure your rings are coated with the egg.

Toss the rings in the ground unsweetened coconut – don’t use your fingers to pick them up though – better to use a fork so you don’t rub the coconut off.

Set your ring aside and continue with the rest.

If you’re going to deep fry them, I used canola oil.. and fried them until they were a nice golden brown.

If you’re going to bake them, try at 400 for 25 minutes.. However again, they don’t crisp up as nice but they are still veryyyy delicious.

To make the dip, mix together your sour cream and curry paste. (I used yellow curry paste from the store)

Hope you enjoy!

This is a recipe I would like to try. I thought CANOLA oil is a big NO NO for KETO. Do you have a tried and true onion ring recipe with a substitution for CANOLA oil?? Thanks, I look forward to an answer 🙂

you’re right! canola oil is trash and should be avoided. I would suggest using peanut oil, avocado oil, lard or beef drippings to deep fry instead!

Thanks for the reply. I was curious why canola oil is in the recipe. I’ll go with avocado oil 🙂
