Preparation

Step 1

Cut about 3/4 inch off top of onion and peel.

Cut into onion 12-16 vertical wedges but do not cut through bottom root end.

Remove about 1 inch of petals from center of onion (You can place the cut onions in cold water for a few hours to help “open” them up — just make sure that you drain them well).

Dip in seasoned flour and gently shake to remove excess.

Separate petals to coat thoroughly with batter.

Gently place in a fryer basket and deep fry at 375-400 for 1 1/2 minutes.

Turn over and fry 1 1/2 minutes more or until golden brown.

Drain on paper towels.

Place onion upright in a shallow bowl and remove center core with a circular cutter or apple corer.

Serve hot with chili sauce and dipping sauce.
