DIRECTIONS

  • Mix mayonnaise, sour cream, chili sauce, cayenne pepper and horseradish sauce in a medium mixing bowl until well combined.
  • Divide sauce among small condiment cups. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Heat the oil in a deep fryer or larrge stock pot to 375-400° Fahrenheit.
  • Prepare the seasoned flour mix by combining flour with garlic powder, paprika, sugar and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Whisk seasonings and flour to incorporate well.
  • Slice 3/4 inch of the root end of each onion.
  • Make 12-16 slices into the trimmed end working in a clockwise manner. Do not cut completely through the onion, leaving about an inch of uncut onion near the opposite root end.
  • Remove about 1 inch of the center petals from each onion.
  • Toss the onions in the seasoned flour to coat well. Peel back the petals slightly to allow the flour to reach between each petal, but do not remove.
  • Combine remaining flour, paprika, pepper, cornstarch, salt, and garlic salt and beer in a second large mixing bowl. Whisk well until smooth.
  • Dip the floured onions in the batter. Allow excess batter to drip off each onion.
  • Use a fryer basket to carefully place the battered onions, one at a time, into the hot oil. Cook for about 90 seconds, flip and cook for an additional 90 seconds.
  • Transfer onions to a plate lined with paper towel to drain.
  • Place on a serving platter and insert the cup of dipping sauce in the center of each onion.
