Method

  1. Use a fork to steady your onion. Slice the onion into rings about 1cm wide. Remove the skin and separate the rings.
  2. Heat the oil to 180C in a heavy-based pan – it should be no more than 1/ 3 full.
  3. Meanwhile put the flour and sparkling water in a bowl and season generously. Whisk together to form a batter.
  4. Coat a small batch of onion rings in batter. Carefully lower into the hot oil and deep-fry until crisp and golden, about 2 - 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a piece of kitchen towel to drain. Repeat with the remaining onion and batter.

Really easy and quick recipe. I used bottled lager instead of fizzy water and it was love lovely. Won't be buying onion rings against.

These are delicious, I won't be buying frozen onion rings again.
I added plenty of seasoning & used olive oil.

Best onion rings, rivals anything had in a restaurant. Needs quite a bit of seasoning though. Recommend that only put a few into fryer at a time as they easily stick together.

A good batter. Light and crisp. I used beer instead of sparkling water as I had that in the house.
Also used some Cajun spice, would recommend salt and pepper at the very least.
Sunflower oil seemed to work as well as groundnut.
