- sunflower oil, for deep-frying
- 2 onions, peeled and sliced into ½ cm rings
- 150g self-raising flour
- 250mls roughly sparkling water
- a little extra flour
Preheat a deep-fat fryer or fill a deep-sided pan one third full with oil and heat to 190C.
If you don’t have a thermometer the oil should be hot enough so that when a bread cube is added, it browns in 40 seconds.
Place the flour into a bowl, then whisk in enough water until you have a thickish batter.
Dust the onion rings in a little flour then into the batter, gently shaking off any excess and then deep-fry for 4-5 minutes until crisp and golden brown.
Drain on kitchen paper.
