How To Cook Onion Rings In Beer-Batter?

Onion rings in beer-batter

A delicious batter for the ever popular fried onion rings. Beer gives the batter an excellent flavor and the addition of egg white keeps it crisp and light.

Serve 2

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes



  • Oil to deep-fry

  • 85 g (3 oz) plain flour

  • 3 Tbsp corn or vegetable oil

  • 250 ml (9 fl oz) beer

  • 1 large egg white

  • 2 large red onions, cut into 1cm (1/2 inch) slices


  1. Heat the oil to 190C/375F in a large pa n or a deep-fryer.

  2. Blend the flour with the oil and beer in a bowl. Whisk the egg white until stiff, then fold it into the batter just before using - this is easiest with a wire whisk.

  3. Separate the onion slices into rings. Coat them in the batter just before frying, then lower them carefully into the hot oil. Fry the rings for 3 to 4 minutes until golden brown, burning them over as necessary.

  4. Remove the rings from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain them on crumpled kitchen paper. Continue cooking in batches.

  5. Serve with steaks, grilled fish or as a simple snack on their own with a garlic or tomato dip.
