Introduction: Gluten Free Onion Rings

Hello Instructable Family!

It's been over a year now since my husband found out he was allergic to gluten, and the dietary changes have been an adventure so far!

Spoiler Alert!! With this realization , we had to cut back on tons of foods we used to love, including Onion Rings!

Bound and determined to get the best of both worlds, I present to you a crispy and delicious onion ring recipe, Sans Gluten ;) Let's begin!!

P.S- I have attached a video tutorial, as well as written instruction. A little bit for everyone :)
