  1. Put the flour into a bowl and make a well in the center.
  2. Pour the beer into the well and whisk until combined.
  3. Let rest, covered for 1 hour.
  4. Peel onions and cut crosswise 1/3 inch thick and separate into rings.
  5. Dust the onion rings with the additional flour, shaking off the excess, and coat them with the batter.

  7. Transfer them with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain and sprinkle them with salt to taste.
