- To make Onion Blossoms
- To cut onion take off top and peel. Starting 1 inch away from the base of the onion make 12-16 cuts slicing down. Flip over and spread out onion "petals"
- Begin heating vegetable oil in fryer (pan or electric). You need oil at 375 degrees
- Mix together all ingredients for batter
- Dunk onions in batter one at a time. Be sure to spread petals and get the batter in there
- Fry each onion for about 3 minutes
- Take out of the fryer and put on a plate covered with paper towels to get some of the excess oil off
- Serve immediately
Really (REALLY) spread the onion after cutting - it's how to get it cooked inside and how to get the batter in there!
