BLOOMING ONION

Everyone at home loves Onion rings, but somehow I have never got around to making them at home. The other day some friends posted pictures of a Blooming Onion and it caught my eye. Immediately found myself searching for a recipe on the internet and what I ended up making turned out quite well. Well, my said said he would rate it a 10 on 10 🙂

This is what you’ll need

Onion: 1 medium or large

All purpose flour: 3/4 cup

Paprika: 1/4tsp

Chilli powder: 1/2tsp

Pepper powder: 1/2tsp

Oregano: 1/2tsp

Garlic powder: 1/2tsp

Salt to taste

Milk: 3/4 cup

Egg: 1

Oil: To deep fry

Let’s get cooking

1. To prepare the blooming onion, cut a small portion at the top of the onion and peel it. Trim off the bottom keeping the base intact. Scoop out a small portion from the top, lengthwise and make slits all round the onion. Carefully separate the layers and drop the onion in cold water until the flour mixture is ready.

2. Prepare the flour mixture by mixing the flour, chilli powder, paprika, pepper powder, oregano, garlic powder and salt.

3. Beat the egg and add the milk to it. Mix well.

4. Now coat the onion with the flour mixture and dip into the egg/milk batter.

5. Coat it with the flour mixture once again, followed by the egg and milk batter.

6. Heat enough oil in a pan and deep fry the entire onion until golden brown. ( The onion should be completely covered in the oil when frying)

7. Drain on a kitchen towel and serve immediately with a mayonnaise/ketchup dip.

Approximate preparation and cooking time: 15 minutes

Serves: 2
