Onion rings are incredibly easy to make, and people just love them. All you have to do is slice up an onion or 2, dunk them in a quick batter, and fry ’em up. You can serve them with your BBQ ribs on a summers evening. A big bowl of fresh battered onion rings will be an empty bowl before you know it.
4 Large onions,
1 cup plain flour
1 bottle lager
1 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper,
In a shallow mixing bowl, whisk the flour, salt and pepper to combine. Whisk in just enough beer to make a smooth paste. Whisk in more beer until the batter is smooth and creamy, about the consistency of double cream.
Slice the onions in half and put cut side down on a chopping board, then slice the root off and bin it
Slice the rest of the onion into thick slices and separate the rings.
Pick up the individual onion rings with metal tongs and dip into the batter and then into a deep fat fryer.
