Heat shortening to 375°F. Peel and slice onions into 1/4-inch slices; seperate into rings. Sift flour with baking powder, salt, and sugar. Combine milk, egg, and melted shortening, add to dry ingredients all at once and beat until smoooth. Dip onion rings into batter and fry until golden brown. Turn once to brown evenly.
Once you try this recipe you will never eat onion rings at a restaurant again! I've had this recipe since 1976!
