1. Place the AirFryer Basket onto a foil-lined Baking Pan and coat
Basket well with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Cut onion, crosswise, into ¼-inch slices.
3. Stir the white rice flour, tapioca starch and salt together in a mixing
bowl. Stir in the beer or sparkling water with a whisk until smooth.
Dip the onion slices into the batter and then place evenly spaced
onto the prepared basket. Once all onions are dipped and placed,
put into the freezer for about 30 minutes for the batter to set up.
4. Once set, brush or spray the onions on both sides liberally with olive
oil. Remove and discard the foil with any dripped batter. Evenly
replace the onions back onto the basket and place into the oven in
the upper rack position. Set to AirFry at 400°F. Cook for 20 to 25
minutes until evenly golden and crispy.
5. Serve immediately.
