Beer-Battered Onion Rings


1¾ cups flour
½ cup cornstarch
1½ tbsp. hot paprika
1 tbsp. dry mustard
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. kosher salt, plus more to taste
2 tsp. honey
12 oz. lager-style beer
Canola oil, for frying
2 large yellow onions, cut crosswise into ½″-thick slices and separated into rings

1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, paprika, mustard, baking powder, and salt. Add honey and beer, and whisk until smooth; let sit for 10 minutes.

2. Pour oil to a depth of 2″ in a 6-qt. Dutch oven and heat over medium-high heat until a deep-fry thermometer reads 375°. Working in batches, dip onion rings into batter, shaking off excess, and lower into oil; fry, flipping once, until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain briefly and season with more salt; serve immediately.
