Use Barrett’s Original mix and your favourite brew to create these light and crispy onion rings for another perfect braai side-dish.
Individual rings of sliced onion are coated in a light beer-based batter before being deep-fried to a soft, slightly sweet, slightly tangy perfection.
For the Cake
Pour half the Barrett’s Beer Bread Mix into a large bowl and add 330ml beer of your choice.
Whisk the mixture till light and fluffy.
Pour the other half of the mix into a shallow bowl for dusting.
Heat two inches of oil in a frying pan.
Dust the onion rings in dry mix and shake off any excess.
Dip the rings in the batter, coating well.
Carefully place into the hot oil and fry for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown on both sides.
Drain on paper towel.
Serve hot, with lemon wedges and coarse salt.
