- In a large pot over medium-high heat, bring 3 inches (8 cm) of oil to 375˚F (190˚C).
- Peel and cut onions crosswise into ½ (1 ⅓ cm) inch slices.
- Separate into rings and place in a large bowl with ice water while you prepare the batter.
- In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together 1 cup flour (125 g), salt, white pepper, and baking powder.
- Whisk in beer and 2 tablespoons of ice water until just combined.
- In a separate bowl, add the remaining 1 cup (125 g) of flour.
- Remove the rings from the ice water bath and pat dry. Coat the rings first in the flour then in the batter, allowing any excess to drip off.
- Working in batches, transfer battered rings to hot oil to cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Transfer to a paper towel lined rack to drain. Sprinkle with salt.
