At a Glance
What you'll need:
- 1ltr vegetable oil
- 150g self-raising flour
- 4 tbsp cornflour
- 200ml pale ale beer
- 3 onions, sliced and separated into rings
- 1 tbsp salt
- Heat the oil in a frying pan to 180˚C (at around this temperature the oil begins to make small bubbles). Make sure the pan and oil are deep enough for the oil to cover the onion rings once submerged.
- To make the onion ring batter add the cornflour, self-raising flour and salt to a bowl. Slowly combine the beer while whisking the mixture until it forms a smooth batter.
- Dip the onion rings into the batter, making sure they are fully coated, and let the excess drip back into the bowl.
- Fry a few beer-battered onion rings in the hot oil for four to five minutes, turning them over once golden and crisp. To avoid overcrowding the pan, cook only a few at a time, allowing the oil to come back to temperature between batches.
- Dry off on kitchen paper to drain the oil and serve to smiling, happy faces! Top tip:serve with a spicy guacamole, smoky BBQ sauce, or smooth sour cream dip.
