How to Make Onion Rings

Coated in a pale ale onion ring batter, these golden treats really hit the spot on a warm day. Serve as a side dish or the main attraction, make sure to provide plenty of dips to dunk the onion rings into – like cooling mayo or sweet BBQ. Try our tasty beer-battered onion rings recipe below and indulge yourself. 

What you'll need:

  • 1ltr vegetable oil
  • 150g self-raising flour
  • 4 tbsp cornflour
  • 200ml pale ale beer
  • 3 onions, sliced and separated into rings
  • 1 tbsp salt


  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan to 180˚C (at around this temperature the oil begins to make small bubbles). Make sure the pan and oil are deep enough for the oil to cover the onion rings once submerged.
  2. To make the onion ring batter add the cornflour, self-raising flour and salt to a bowl. Slowly combine the beer while whisking the mixture until it forms a smooth batter.
  3. Dip the onion rings into the batter, making sure they are fully coated, and let the excess drip back into the bowl.
  4. Fry a few beer-battered onion rings in the hot oil for four to five minutes, turning them over once golden and crisp. To avoid overcrowding the pan, cook only a few at a time, allowing the oil to come back to temperature between batches.
  5. Dry off on kitchen paper to drain the oil and serve to smiling, happy faces! Top tip: serve with a spicy guacamole, smoky BBQ sauce, or smooth sour cream dip.
