Soak the Onion Rings

Separate the onion rings and place them in a bowl. Pour the buttermilk over the onion rings, ensuring they are well coated. Let them soak for at least 30 minutes to tenderize and add flavor.

Coat the Onion Rings

Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C). Coat each wet onion ring in flour, letting excess buttermilk drop off. Gentle pressing adheres the coating.
