- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 2
- 1 large onion , cut into 1cm slices, rings separated
- groundnut oil , for deep frying
- 150g self-raising flour
- 180ml sparkling water
- STEP 1
Use a fork to steady your onion. Slice the onion into rings about 1cm wide. Remove the skin and separate the rings.
- STEP 2
Heat the oil to 180C in a heavy-based pan – it should be no more than 1/ 3 full.
- STEP 3
Meanwhile put the flour and sparkling water in a bowl and season generously. Whisk together to form a batter.
- STEP 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.
