Method


  1. For the onion rings, place the vegetable oil into a deep, heavy-bottomed saucepan and heat until a small cube of bread sizzles and turns golden when dropped into it. (CAUTION: hot oil can be dangerous. Do not leave unattended.)

  2. Place both types of flour into a large bowl, season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper and whisk in enough sparkling water to make a batter the consistency of single cream - you may not need it all.

  3. Dip the onion rings into the batter then carefully place them into the hot oil to deep fry for 4-5 minutes, or until golden-brown. Remove the onion rings from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.

  4. For the salad, place the mustards, vinegar and olive oil into a large bowl, season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper and mix well. Add the watercress to the bowl and stir to coat.

  5. To serve, place the salad onto a large plate with the onion rings on top.
