Preparation

Step 1

Mix cornstarch, flour, and seasonings until well blended. Add beer, mix well. Cut about 3/4" off top of onion and peel. Cut into onion 12 to 16 vertical wedges, but do not cut through bottom root end.

Plunge the onion into boiling water for 1 minute. Remove from boiling water and plunge into Ice water for 3 minutes.

While it's cooling, mix the seasoned flour mixture in a medium size bowl and set aside.

Take it out of the water and gently "drop" it root end facing down, onto a counter top until it "flowers".


Gently place in fryer basket and deep-fry at 375 to 400 1 1/2 minutes. Turn over, and fry an additional 1 1/2 minutes, or until golden brown.

Drain on paper towels.

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

Serve hot with Creamy Chili Sauce.


SAUCE:
To make the creamy chili sauce, simply combine all ingredients in a small bowl, mixing well. Sauce recipe may be doubled, if needed.
