Summary

We liked the crunchy exterior of the onion ring and the fact that there are better vegetarian options in the frozen food segment that are not just about potatoes. What doesn't work is the average-tasting stuffing inside.

Are you bored of the same old aloo-based frozen snacks? Us too. Which is why we are excited to try out this new product by Keventer.

Our Review Factors

What were we looking for? When someone says onion rings, we instantly think of a fairly large ring of onion that has been coated with a thick batter, breaded and deep fried till golden and crisp. We were looking for the same, but from a frozen bag. 

We set the following parameters to review the Keventer crispy onion rings – 

1. Taste

How flavorful is the onion ring? Seasoning level of the filling and the breading were both taken under consideration. Industrial aftertaste 

2. Texture

Under texture we considered the following – crunch of the onion rings, thickness of the batter and breading, ratio of coating-batter to the filling inside.

Taste and texture, together, help us gauge freshness.

3. Other Supporting Parameters

Price, packaging and convenience are a few other parameters we considered for this review.

Appearance

The onion rings are fairly large in size and have an orangey tone. None of the pieces were broken or cracked. These are thick and the breading is even throughout the entire pack. Upon frying these have turned a dark golden brown.

Taste + Texture

As we mentioned earlier, onion rings spark an image of a single ring of an onion – battered, breaded and deep fried. Keventers’ onion rings are unlike that. These are a filling of chopped onions, flour, potato flakes and seasoning coated with a thick breading. The coating is thicker and more prominent than the filling inside. 

We liked the crisp texture of the onion rings and the fact that it did not absorb too much oil. A super pronounced crunch when you bite into it.

These taste good with sweet onions in-between bites, are salted aptly and have medium-high spice levels. 

Although this is a nice tasting snack that gives you a break from our usual potato-dominant frozen snacks, the promise of onion rings didn’t actually follow through.

  • Crisp outer coating.
  • Do not absorb too much oil.
  • Apt seasoning.
  • Not an actual onion ring. These have small chopped bits of onions in it.
  • Breading to filling ratio is a bit off.

If you’re looking to add variety to your frozen food spread at home that is not potato based, this is a good vegetarian option.
