Onion rings are a common fast food item that are usually covered in a breading or batter and deep-fried. When you make an onion ring batter at home, the proper consistency is crucial for a crispy finished product. It is wise to eat any deep-fried foods on only an occasional basis, as the extra fat and calories may result in weight gain.

Step 1

Add 1 cup pastry flour, ¼ tsp. baking powder, ¼ tsp. salt and 2 tbsp. cornstarch to a large mixing bowl and whisk together until combined.

Step 2

Pour 1 cup of beer slowly into the dry ingredients and whisk everything together until the batter is smooth.

Step 3

Dip the sliced onion rings into the batter until thoroughly coated. Shake off any excess batter and add the rings to the deep fryer.

Step 4

Substitute club soda or plain water for the beer if you prefer no alcohol in the batter.
