DIRECTIONS

  • Beat egg and combine with milk in a bowl big enough to hold the onion without spilling.
  • In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt, pepper, oregano, thyme and cumin.
  • Peel onion, and slice off about 1/2-1 inch off of both ends.
  • Remove a 1 inch core from the center.
  • Slice the onion with an onion blossom cutter, or if you don't have one of those, slice the onion into 16 equal vertical slices---being very careful not to cut all the way to the bottom (leave about 1/4 inch or more at the bottom) Separate"petals" of the onion.
  • Dredge onion in egg, then in flour mixture, shaking off excess.
  • Dredge in egg again, and again in the flour mixture--again, shaking off excess.
  • Allow onion to rest 15 minutes in the refrigerator.
  • Heat oil (enough to cover onion) to 350º.
  • Fry the onion right side up in the oil for 10 minutes or until golden.
  • Drain on paper towels and serve with dipping sauce.
