- 2 large yellow onion (peeled and kept in the fridge for 1-2 hours)
- 75g flour
- 2tbsp cornstarch
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- a pinch of paprika
- pepper to taste
- 1 egg (well-beaten)
- 125ml fresh milk
- oil for deep frying
Heat the oil over medium-high heat. Allow it to heat up hot enough to fry, but not to smoke.
Slice the onions into 1cm -thick rings. Separate them and place them on a tray.
Combine the flour, corn starch, baking powder, paprika, sugar, salt and the pepper in a bowl and with a whisk, stir it together briefly.
Add the egg to the milk and whisk together.Then pour this mixture into the dry ingredients and combine it together with your whisk until you are left a smooth batter.
Gently dip some of the onions into the batter and coat well. Then place them into the hot oil using a fork. Let them cook in small batches, so they won’t stick together. When they are fried on one side, turn them over to fry and brown on the other side. When are they are lightly golden, place onto a tray lined with kitchen paper to drain.
