We cooked the battered onion rings for the first time, using tempura batter. Following an internet recipe or two, we decided upon our ingredients and went for it. I liked the idea of adding cornflour to self raising flour, which we did. But our first batch of onion rings turned out sadly lacking enough batter, as it had fallen off:
So there you have it. A meal that cost us around 600 calories, was brimming full of flavour and... more to the point, we couldn't finish because we were so full. The battered onion rings were fabulous. More to the point, we eat what we enjoy and because of that, we don't need to pick or snack because we've denied ourselves anything. To some this meal fails as it has no chips, but to be honest, we much prefer the fresh taste of the new potatoes to chips. So, whatever takes your fancy, please eat and enjoy. Just know what your are eating, how many calories are in your food, and choose to eat it or not.
