Onion Rings

Onion rings
serves 4–6

350ml/12fl oz plain flour
4 tablespoons cornmeal
4 tablespoons onion powder
2 teaspoons salt
350ml/12fl oz milk
1 large egg
8 large onions
vegetable oil for deep-frying

• Combine the flour, cornmeal, onion powder, salt, milk, egg and 125ml/4fl oz water in a large bowl. Stir well until there are no lumps and the batter is smooth.
• Slice the onions across to make rings about 1cm/1/2in thick.
• Heat the oil in a large saucepan until hot. Test to see whether the oil is hot enough by dropping a little of the batter into the oil – it should sizzle straight away.
• Dip the separated rings into the batter. Drop the coated rings into the oil and fry until golden brown. Cook in batches if necessary.
• Remove the onion rings with a slotted spoon, and drain on kitchen paper. Serve hot.
