Fried Onion Appetizer

1/3 cup cornstarch
1 1/2 cup flour
2 tsp garlic, minced
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
8 to 24 oz beer
4 Vidalia or Texas sweet onions

Please note that the 24 oz. of beer seems to be too much. That is
the recipe as originally given to me. If you use that quantity it
will be too much beer. Start with 1 cup of beer, and add until you
get the batter to the consistancy that you desire.

Seasoned Flour

2 cup flour
4 tsp. paprika
2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 cayenne pepper

Combine and mix well.

Creamy Chili Sauce

1 pint Mayonnaise
1 pint Sour cream
1/2 cup Tomato chili sauce
1/2 tsp. Cayenne pepper

Combine and mix well.

Mix cornstarch, flour, and seasonings until well blended. Add beer,
mix well. Cut about 3/4" off top of onion and peel. Cut into onion
12 to 16 verticle wedges but do not cut through bottom root end.
Remove about 1" of petals from center of onion. You may want to
separate the onion petals slightly, do not do this too much, you
will destroy the onion. Dip onion in seasoned flour remove excess
by shaking. Seperate petals to coat thoroughly with batter. Dip in
batter. Dip in flour mixture again. Gently place in fryer basket
and deep-fry at 375 to 400 1 1/2 minutes. Turn over, and fry an
additional 1 1/2 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Place onion upright
in shallow bowl and remove center core with cicular cutter or apple
corer. Serve hot with Creamy Chili Sauce.
