2 large onions, cut into rings (1/4 inch)
1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
Vegetable oil for frying
3/4 cup bread crumbs (optional)
Separate the 1/4 inch slices of onion rings into separate rings.
Soak onion rings in a bowl of ice water for one hour, drain and pat dry with paper towels
In a small bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Coat onion rings in the dry mixture and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk 1 egg and milk together until smooth
Heat oil in a deep fryer or large saucepan to 375 degree Fahrenheit or 190 degree Celsius.
Dip flour coated onion rings in the egg-milk mixture and place on a wire rack to remove or let excess egg-milk mixture drain.
When it is drained, pour bread crumbs in a shallow dish. Dip egg-milk coated onion rings into the bread crumbs until completely coated.
Fry the battered onion rings, working in batches, until golden brown for about 5 minutes. Transfer fried onion rings to a paper towel lined plate using a slotted spoon (to let any excess oil drain off).
You can sprinkle each onion rings with little salt.
