Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 185 degrees C (365 degrees F).
Separate the onion slices into rings; set aside. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt.
Dip the onion slices into the flour mixture until they are all coated; set aside. Whisk the egg and milk into the flour mixture using a fork. Dip the floured rings into the batter to coat, then place on a wire rack to drain until the batter stops dripping. The wire rack may be placed over a sheet of foil for easier clean up. Spread the breadcrumbs out on a plate or shallow dish. Place rings one at a time into the crumbs, and scoop the crumbs up over the ring to coat. Give it a hard tap as you remove it from the crumbs. The coating should cling very well. Repeat with remaining rings.
Deep fry the onion rings a few at a time for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove and set on kitchen paper to drain. Season with seasoning salt and serve.
