  • 300ml tomato ketchup
  • 300ml Guinness, chilled
  • 1tsp horseradish sauce
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Vegetable oil, for deep-frying
  • 200g plain flour
  • 1½tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 large onion, cut into 1cm slices and rings separated
  • Place the tomato ketchup, 80ml of the Guinness, the bay leaf and horseradish sauce in a pan over a medium heat. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15 mins until syrupy. Remove the bay leaf.

  • Meanwhile, gradually heat the oil for frying in a deep pan.

  • Mix together the flour and bicarbonate of soda. Gradually whisk in the rest of the Guinness, beating out any lumps as you go.

  • Test the oil is hot enough by dropping in a small amount of batter. If it sizzles, it’s ready.

  • Dip the onion rings into the Guinness batter and fry in batches in the hot oil until golden brown. Remove onto a plate lined with kitchen paper. Serve with the Guinness ketchup.
