Battered onion rings

    8 min

    Sliced onions are dipped in a simple batter and then deep fried to a crisp golden brown. Serve with your favourite dipping sauce - anything from ketchup to aioli. For those people who can't use booze!

    Serves: 2 

    • 1 onion
    • 125g flour
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 2 small pinches bicarbonate of soda
    • 1 egg
    • 60-75ml milk
    • 475ml oil

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:3min  ›  Ready in:8min 

    1. Slice onion, the thickness depends on you! Seperate rings and put to side.
    2. Place dry ingredients in a bowl.
    3. Add egg to dry ingredients and mix till stiff, slowly start to introduce milk whilst whisking to remove lumpy bits, the batter should be a thickish consistency, not runny like you'd make for a pancake.
    4. In a deep pan add oil and turn on heat. To see if it is hot enough drop a tiny amount of batter into pan if it starts to fizz and go brown its at the right temperature.
    5. Dip onion rings in batter, make sure they are well covered and drop into pan when one side is brown (keep checking) turn over and brown the other side
    6. Take out onion rings and place on kitchen paper to drain. The End!

    Great idea, making a start already, but not sure which flour to use; plain, self-raising, or some other flour. Could someone plz help. Thx  -  04 Mar 2014


    Something else. I find it easier to avoid a lumpy batter by whisking egg and milk together first, than whisking in the dry stuff bit by bit.  -  01 Mar 2011
