A Chippy In Glasgow Is Selling Deep Fried Battered Picked Onions
If you're looking for a nice - if not exactly healthy - treat to slide down your throat as the cold evenings set in and the days shorten, how about heading up to Cambuslang in Scotland for a battered pickled onion?
Yes, it's a combination that we never thought that we'd need, but it could just be delicious. In fact, it's almost definitely delicious, provided you like both battered food and vinegary treats.
This particular culinary invention is the brainchild of 38-year-old Amandeep Singh, who is the owner of Codfather Fish and Chips out there in south-east Glasgow.
Singh decided that the onions, which are served as a traditional accompaniment to the traditional fish supper, could do with a little spin around in the deep fat fryer with some battery goodness chucked in for good measure.
He's flogging them for 50p a pop, or £2 for a full set of five. They're also available for delivery, should you wish to enjoy them in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
Mr Singh decided to get into the spirit of his homeland by simply slinging things into the deep fat fryer in order to create a new dish.
We've all heard of battered Mars bars, but this is a whole new savoury take on that theory.
The dad, who has been running the chippy for 16 year now, said that he's only started selling these treats this week, but they're already proving to be a huge success.
He explained: "I've never seen it done before.
"I've been working a long time in chippies and just wanted to be different and thought I'd try putting a pickled onion in batter.

"When it's quiet, you think up different things."
"We just started selling them yesterday. They're not on the menu yet, but the customers like them already.
"People have been messaging saying they're really tasty.
"I like them myself, and all the staff really like them. The batter's nice and crispy and you still get a crunch with the onion."
He first shared his creations on the company Facebook page, in the belief that his loyal customers would love what he'd come up with.
It seems he wasn't wrong, as the post has received more than 8,200 comments to date, with many people lining up to declare their devotion to the new snack.
One pleased consumer wrote: "This is a game-changer for when the cravings kick in."
If you find yourself in this particular suburb of Glasgow, why not pop in and grab a tray?
