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.

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