What you need:

2 large onions

2 tablespoons corn flour

2 tablespoons chicken flavored broth mix

1 egg


 For the batter:

1 1/4 cups flour

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup of Guinness Draught Stout Beer

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 liter of oil - for deep frying


How to:

Grind the onions in a food processor. Squeeze out the liquids well, and return the onion to the food processor. Add the rest of the ingredients except the bread crumbs, and continue to grind until a mixture is formed.

Put the mixture in a pastry bag. Prepare a large tray and grease it well. Sprinkle some bread crumbs on the tray. Drizzle onion rings using the pastry bag. Freeze everything overnight.

The next day release the rings from the tray, and return to the freezer again.

Prepare the batter: Mix all the batter ingredients well.

Heat the oil for deep frying. Just before frying, remove the onion rings from the freezer. Dip each ring in the batter, shake off excess and fry in oil until the rings are golden. Remove to absorbent paper.


Side Tips: 

Keep the onion root intact while slicing,  to avoid clutter the next time you chop an onion, do not remove the root. Peel the onion and slice it horizontally. Then cut vertically to create perfectly chopped pieces. And that's it! The simplest and best!
