Homemade Onion Rings!

summer dinner party 019

For my recent dinner party, I decided to try this new recipe, and wow were these Homemade Onion Rings good! I was inspired by the food network’s Riccardo, and his Beer-Battered Onion Rings. If you want a little wow factor in your dinner, give these a try. They did take awhile to make, but I think they are worth it as a special treat.

Riccardo’s Beer-Battered Onion Rings


  • 1 large Spanish onion, sliced into 1-cm (1/2-inch) rounds and separated into rings
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup pastry flour
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup pale ale
  • Oil for frying


  1. Preheat the deep fryer to 190°C (375°F). Place a cooling rack on a baking sheet or line a baking sheet with paper towels.
  2. Toss the onion rings in the cornstarch to coat well. Set aside.
  3. To prepare the batter, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt. Whisk in the beer.
  4. Dip the cornstarch coated rings in the batter, 4 or 5 at a time. Shake off excess batter and deep-fry for about 3 minutes, turning half way through cooking. Drain on the baking sheet. Season lightly with salt. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
