THE INGREDIENTS NEEDED FOR MAKING THE DIPPING SAUCE:
- 1/4 Cup.Of mayonnaise.
- 1/4 Cup.Of sour cream.
- 1 1/2 Tbsp.Of creamy horseradish.
- 1 1/2 Tbsp.Of ketchup.
- 1/2 Tbsp.Of smoked paprika.
- 1/2 Tsp.Of garlic powder.
- 1/4 Tsp.Of ground cayenne pepper.
AND TO MAKE THE FRIED BLOOMING ONIONS, YOU’LL NEED:
- 2 whole eggs.
- 1 Cup.Of whole milk.
- 2 Cup.Of regular flour.
- 1 Tbsp.Of smoked paprika.
- 1 Tbsp.Of ground cumin.
- 1 Tsp.Of dried oregano.
- 1 Tsp.Of fresh thyme.
- 1 Tsp.Of salt.
- 1 Tsp.Of ground cayenne pepper.
- 1/2 Tsp.Of ground black pepper.
- 1/2 Tsp.Of garlic powder.
- 3 medium-sized sweet onions.
- Vegetable oil – for frying.
1 – Mix together the mayonnaise, sour cream, horseradish, ketchup, paprika, and garlic powder. Cayenne pepper may also be used.
2 – In a basin that is both broad and deep enough to accommodate the onion, whisk together the egg and the milk.
3 – In a separate basin large enough to accommodate the onion, combine flour, with smoked paprika, cumin, dried oregano, thyme, salt, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and garlic powder.
4 – On the end of the onion that doesn’t have a root, cut a small flat spot. Take off any peels that are dry or damaged. Put the onion on the chopping board with the flat side facing down (root side up).
5 – Make a clean slice downward using a sharp knife, beginning the cut about half an inch from the base of the plant. Make another clean slice downward as the onion is turned a quarter of the way around.
6 – After that, you will need to make two additional quarter rotations, followed by two more clean cuts downward. In each of those four portions, make three to four cuts angled downward at equal distances from one another.
7 – After that, flip the onion so that the root side is facing down, and carefully separate the parts. Place the onion into the basin where the flour and salt are mixed. Coat the onion with the flour mixture using your hands, taking care to spread it out, and separate the pieces as you go to ensure that all of the onion is breaded.
8 – Now dip the onion into the egg mixture that has been prepared. The onion should be coated with the flour mixture before being placed back into the bowl.
9 – Now, you should heat the oil to 375 degrees in a heavy-bottomed pan. You will need exactly enough oil to coat the onion completely.
10 – Fry the onions with the root side up for around five to seven minutes. Drain on a layer of paper towels. As soon as possible, serve with the dipping sauce.
- Try to keep the fryer temperature at 375 degrees all the time. Make use of a thermometer designed for confectionery or deep frying. Fry in a pan that’s got some weight to it using a Dutch oven. As a result of their thickness, they are excellent at preserving and holding heat.
- Use a deep fryer if you have one that is sufficiently sized for the job.
- Do not overcrowd the frying pan if you want the finest results. Instead, cook the food in stages.
- When you are cooking the onions, keep a very careful eye on them. It might take anywhere from five to seven minutes for them to get a rich golden brown color.
