Cut a small slice off the top. Starting at the top of the onion and on one side, make a cut downward toward the root end, stopping 1/2 inch from the bottom. Make additional cuts completely across the top of onion. Turn the onion a quarter turn so the slices are horizontal to you. Repeat the cuts 1/8 inch apart from each other until there is a checkerboard pattern. In a small cowl, make dip by combining mayonnaise, sour cream, chili powder and 1 1/2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning. Mix well and set aside. In a gallon plastic bag, combine flour and remaining Cajun seasoning. Place milk in a small deep bowl. Coat onion in flour, then dip into milk and back into the flour mixture. Fry in enough oil to cover onion at 350 degrees for 5 minutes; turning once. Remove from oil; place on serving plate. Serve immediately. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
