Step by Step Method
I use a tall frying pan or a dutch oven, and I pour in 1 to 1/2 inches oil. Heat to 375 degrees.
Beat egg, oil and milk together until blended well.
Add 1 1/2 cups flour, salt and baking powder. Mix well. Batter will be thick.
Coat the sliced onions in flour and shake off the excess.
Test the oil if you don't have a thermometer by dropping in a small amount of the prepared batter. You want it to float pretty quickly. If it doesn't, continue to heat until its ready.
Dip onions in batter and place into hot oil carefully. You will have to do these in batches, so they don't all stick together.
Turn over the battered onions after a minute or so, watch closely as they will brown quickly in the hot oil.
Remove browned onion rings to a plate covered with a paper towel to drain grease. Salt them while still hot. Continue to fry batches.
