Onion rings are just that little bit more special than french fries.
In a deep-fryer or large saucepan, heat some oil until it reaches 180°C (350°F). Make the batter by mixing the wet and dry ingredients together separately. Whisk the two mixtures together until smooth.
Peel and cut the onions into slices 1–2 cm (½–¾ inch) thick and separate the slices into rings.
Dip the onion rings into the batter, allowing the excess to drain off, and fry for about 3 minutes until golden brown, turning them over halfway through. Start frying by testing the oil with a small ring of onion. If it cooks too slowly or too quickly, adjust the oil temperature. Make sure you allow the oil to heat back up for a few minutes between batches.
Drain the onion rings on some paper towels. Keep them in an oven
