Onion Rings!

These little babies got me out of a tight spot while in Tasmania filming Masterchef!
(Find the episode here Masterchef )

They are yum! 
So enough chat here's the recipe so you can make them at home:

Onion Rings
2 Large brown onions
1/4 Cup Plain Flour
1 1/2 Cups Soda Water
1 Cup Plain Flour
Pinch of Salt
Oil to fry ( I use rice bran oil)

Chop the onions up into 5mm circles, push out all the rings then place in a bowl with the 1/4 cup flour and toss to coat.
In another bowl, pop the 1 cup flour along with the soda water and salt and whisk until smooth and is the consistency of runny honey.

Heat the oil up on the stove, to test it you can place one of the onion rings in there, it should bubble straight away.

Then in batches, shake off the flour, dunk the onion into the batter then fry until golden. 
Drain on some absorbent paper towel then sprinkle some more salt and then....


You could try them with different flavoured salts such as a fennel salt or chili salt made by crushing together equal parts of each ingredient in a motor and pestle.

Personally I just love them with a good hit of sea salt :)

Enjoy! xxx
