2 cups flour
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
1-1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup buttermilk ( or milk+1 tsp vinegar, stir and let sit for 5 minutes)
1 large sweet onion, cur into 1/2" slices
Vegetable oil for frying
Preheat oil in deep fryer or large deep pan.
Place buttermilk in a bowl and set aside for now.
In separate bowl, mix together flour, panko, salt, pepper and baking powder.
Dip onion rings in flour, then buttermilk, then flour again.
Place in the hot oil without crowding them too much.
When they're golden brown, remove and drain well!
