Dan and Gemma - Beer Battered Onion Rings
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 6 mins
2 large onions, thickly sliced
Seasoned plain flour, to dust
Sweet paprika, to dust
250g self-raising flour
250ml (1 cup) lager
1. To make batter, whisk flour and lager with 250ml (1 cup) ice cold water in a bowl.
2. Fill a deep-fryer or large saucepan one-third full with vegetable oil and heat over medium heat to 180C (or until a cube of bread turns golden in 10 seconds). Working in batches, dust onion rings with flour, then dip into batter and allow excess batter to drain off, then gently drop into the oil and fry, turning halfway, for 4-6 minutes or until crisp and golden. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towel.
3. Season with salt and paprika to serve.
