In a pan on high heat, heat the oil. Dip the onion rings in the batter, then fry in the oil for about 2 minutes on each side, until lightly golden. 

Let them rest quickly on kitchen roll to absorb the excess oil, then serve piping hot with a generous helping of apricot ketchup! 

Tip : To know when the oil reaches the right frying temperature, drop some batter in it: if it bubbles, it’s ready! 


Roussillon apricot ketchup 

In a saucepan on medium heat, cook the onion in olive oil until soft and lightly coloured. Then add the garlic, ginger, and spices and cook for 3 minutes.
