What are onion rings?

An onion ring is a popular side dish or appetiser standard in British and American cuisine. They consist of a ring of onion, usually covered in batter and then deep-fried in vegetable oil until crispy. They are typically accompanied by a dipping sauce, such as ketchup, mayonnaise or barbecue sauce. You can usually find these on the menus in bars, pubs, fast food chains and certain restaurants.

Are onion rings healthy for you?

Not exactly. There’s a lot of speculation about whether onion rings are healthier than French fries. I’d say they go head-to-toe when it comes to the “health” aspect. There’s a lot of difference in their nutrients, so it depends on what nutrients you’re going for. But, the bottom line is that just one portion of onion rings is high in fats, carbs and calories, which is no different to French fries, so as with everything, simply enjoy these in moderation!

Instructions For Crispy Beer Battered Onion Rings

  1. Start by sieving the flour into a large mixing bowl. Then add the garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper and combine it. 
  2. Then remove 70g of the dry mix and place it into another bowl for later. 
  3. Gently tip the beer into the original mixing bowl with the flour mixture. Then with a whisk, mix the batter until smooth. Then let this sit at room temperature for 10 mins whilst you prep onions. 
  4. Pour vegetable oil into a deep frying pan. The larger, the better. Heat oil on medium-high heat (about 190c)
  5. Cut the ends off of the onions and remove the peel. Now carefully slice the onions into rings about 1/2 inch thick. You can make the cutting slightly easier by chopping a small piece off of the bottom of the onion to stop it from rolling. You can remove the middle bits of each onion slice and keep them for future recipes. 
  6. In batches, add the first load of onions to the dry flour mix and make sure they all get coated. 
  7. Once the oil is hot enough, you can now dip each onion ring into the wet batter, drop off the excess, and gently drop each one into the oil. Do not overcrowd the frying pan and work in batches. I fried 4 to 5 at a time as they can quickly get stuck together. Keep flipping each onion ring until both sides are golden brown. It usually takes 3 minutes or so in total. 
  8. Once golden brown, you can remove the onion rings with tongs or a slotted metal spoon and then place them on some kitchen roll to drain. Then keep repeating this process until all the rings have been cooked. You can keep them warm on low heat in an oven if you prefer to eat them all hot. 
  9. I served mine simply with some tomato ketchup, but of course would be an incredible side to a vegan steak dinner or a burger.
  10. Enjoy!
