Beer battered onion rings

Serves: 6 - 8

Ingredients

1g dry yeast
30g warm water
1 tsp caster sugar
140g plain flour
140g cornflour
330g can Heineken lager
1 large onion
Oil, for deep frying
 

Method

1. Place the yeast into a bowl with the warm water and sugar. Leave to stand for 5 minutes.

2. Mix the flour and cornflour with the lager until well combined. Stir in the yeast mixture to make a batter. Leave to stand at room temperature for 25 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, preheat a deep fat fryer or saucepan half filled with oil to 180°C, or when a cube of bread turns golden in 20 seconds. Peel the onion and slice into 5mm-thick rings. Dip the largest rings into the rested batter to coat completely.

4. Place the rings into the hot oil, in batches if necessary, and cook for 3 minutes, until golden brown and crispy. Place onto kitchen paper to drain, then serve immediately.
