- Cut the peeled onions into 1/2in slices and separate into rings.
- Soak the rings in the buttermilk mixed with the cayenne pepper. Leave for up to 1/2 an hour - the longer they soak the better.
- In another bowl mix together the flour, celery salt, garlic powder, and paprika.
- Drain the onion rings and drop them in the seasoned flour.
- Remove and deep-fry a few rings at a time in hot oil until golden and crisp.
- Season and serve immediately.
