  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Heat the oven to 200 F. Line a baking sheet with paper towels and have a spare baking sheet or pan ready for keeping the fried onion rings warm.
  3. Step 3

    Wash and peel the onions and then cut them into 1/4-inch thick rounds. Separate rounds into rings.
  4. Step 4

    Heat 3 to 4 inches of vegetable oil in a deep, heavy pan or deep fryer to 365 F.
  5. Step 5

    In a bowl, combine flour, seasonings, and baking powder. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and milk. Add milk mixture to dry ingredients. Stir until well blended.
  6. Step 6

    Dip onion rings into batter, then drop into deep fat at about 365. Work with just a few at a time; don't crowd them.
  7. Step 7

    Fry the onion rings until they are golden brown, turning to brown both sides. Each batch will take about 2 to 3 minutes.
  8. Step 8

    Remove the onion rings to the pan with paper towels to drain thoroughly. Transfer them to another pan and move them to the preheated oven to keep warm while you make subsequent batches. They will stay crisp for about 20 to 30 minutes.

    Repeat with the remaining onion rings.

    Once all of the onion rings have been fried, serve immediately, sprinkled with salt.
