Buttermilk Fried Onion Rings

Recently I got a reality check when a renowned school asked a five and a half year old child was asked to write a one and a half hours of exam consisting of 3 subjects( Math, English and Hindi to be specific). I said to myself what kind of future we are presenting to our children where from such a tender age a child is subjected to academics only and no sports and co-curricular activities? However, I am hopeful that considering the information age we live in which informs us about live cases about ill effects of over burdening the child with books , many parents have started to raise their voice and sooner or later schools would have no alternative but to focus on overall development of the children. It does not help it if all the children are forced to become either doctors or engineers , throttling their inherent talents. If a child is allowed to develop happily and in a free state in primary stage, only then he/she would harness his/her talent and grow as a responsible citizen.

Just wanted to let you know all about my perspective about Indian Education System in India. By the way , posting onion rings recipe just in case you have guests arriving in evening and want to keep them busy with these munchy onion rings. Buttermilk in this batter adds a unique flavor in these onion rings. Extremely addictive and very easy to prepare also.
Source: Tarla Dalal's Finger Foos for Kids
1 cups All purpose flour
4 Onions (almost of same size) and cut into rings
1 tsp Cornflour
1 cup Buttermilk*
A pinch of soda
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper powder
1 tsp Chat masala
2 tbsp finely chopped Coriander leaves
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying

* To make buttermilk take a cup of milk and add 1 tbsp vinegar and let this sit for 5 minutes. Your homemade buttermilk is ready !!! Combine flour, cornflour, pepper powder, soda, salt in a large bowl and mix well to make smooth lump free batter. 

The batter should be of pouring consistency. Heat oil in a deep frying pan and test the oil temperature by first  dropping an onion ring into the hot oil, it should bubble straight away. Now dip the onion rings in the prepared batter and drop 5-6 onion rings at a time (don't over crowd the pan) and fry until golden. Drain on absorbant paper, sprinkle a little chaat masala over it and toss well. Serve immediately with tomato ketchup
