Beer battered onion rings - my mother-in-law taught me this. You can actually use this batter for a lot of things, like zucchini, eggplant, jalapenos, etc.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 teaspoons dried parsley
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons dried oregano
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup beer
- 3 large onions, sliced into rings
- 1 cup oil for frying
In a shallow bowl combine flour, egg, parsley, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper. Gradually add beer, stirring, until a thick batter forms. Add more or less beer depending on the desired consistency of the batter.
In a heavy frying pan heat oil (adjust amount, depending on the size of your pan, so that you have a couple of inches of oil) over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, dip onions in batter and fry, turning once to brown evenly on both sides. Drain on paper towels.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
