BUTTERMILK FRIED ONION RINGS
Butter milk added to the batter brings out a unique flavour in these onion rings. Toss the freshly-fried rings in chaat masala and serve hot with ketchup or eggless mayonnaise. They vanish from the plate pretty quickly!

1½ cups buttermilk, refer handy tip
½ tsp freshly ground pepper powder

Salt to taste
4 onions, cut into rings
Oil for deep-frying
1 tsp chaat masala
Eggless mayonnaise, readily available in the market
1.Combine the plain flour, cornflour, buttermilk, pepper powder, soda-bi-carb and salt in a bowl and mix well to make a batter of pouring consistency.
2.Heat the oil in a kadhai, dip the onion rings in the batter, a few at a time, and deep-fry till they are golden brown in colour from both the sides.
