Preheat a deep-fat fryer or fill a deep-sided pan one third full with oil and heat to 190C.

If you don’t have a thermometer the oil should be hot enough so that when a bread cube is added, it browns in 40 seconds.

Place the flour into a bowl, then whisk in enough water until you have a thickish batter.

Dust the onion rings in a little flour then into the batter, gently shaking off any excess and then deep-fry for 4-5 minutes until crisp and golden brown.

Drain on kitchen paper.
