DIRECTIONS

  • Make horseradish dipping sauce by combining ingredients in a medium bowl with a whisk.
  • Mix until creamy then cover and chill the sauce.
  • Heat the shortening to 350 degrees in a deep fryer.
  • Slice the stem end and the root end off onion, then, with the onion resting on a flat side, cut down through the onion, slicing it in half.
  • Slice each half 4 to 5 more times in a spoke fashion to create wedges of onion.
  • Separate the onion pieces.
  • Create batter by combining all dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
  • Whisk in milk until batter is smooth then let the batter sit for 5 minutes.
  • It should thicken.
  • Whisk batter again.
  • When oil is hot dip each onion piece in the batter, let some of the batter drip off then drop the coated onion piece carefully into the hot oil.
  • Repeat, frying 8 to 12 at a time for 1 to 2 minutes or until light brown.
  • Drain on a rack or paper towels.
  • Repeat until the onion is used up, stacking the newer batches on top of the old ones to keep them warm.
  • When they're all done, serve the fried onion slices on a plate or in a paper-lined basket with horseradish dipping sauce on the side.
