Directions for: Beer-Battered Onion Rings


Onion Rings

1 large Spanish onion, sliced into 1-cm (1/2-inch) rounds and separated into rings (if desired, set aside the small centre rings for another use)

¼ cup cornstarch


1 cup pastry flour

2 Tbsp cornstarch

¼ tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

1 cup pale ale

Oil for frying


Onion Rings

1. Preheat the deep fryer to 190°C (375°F). Place a cooling rack on a baking sheet or line a baking sheet with paper towels.

2. In a paper bag or large bowl, toss the onion rings in the cornstarch to coat well. Set aside.


1. In a bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt. Whisk in the beer.

2. Using your fingertips or a wooden chopstick, dip the rings in the batter, 4 or 5 at a time. Shake off excess batter and deep-fry for about 3 minutes, turning half way through cooking. Drain on the baking sheet. Season lightly with salt. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
