The simplest food you can prepare is in the spice pantry. Find a large onion and you can have instant snack or dinner. Try this very easy and gorgeous looking onion.


  • white onion
  • flour
  • corn starch
  • egg
  • salt
  • pepper
  • lemon halved
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • mayonnaise
  • 400 ml water
  • oil for deep frying


  1. Slice onion like a pie. Do not slice through the bottom, only below halfway the whole onion.
  2. Drop into boiling water and wait until it opens like a blooming flower.
  3. Remove from water and bathe in beaten egg.
  4. Coat with a mixture of flour, cornstarch, salt and pepper.
  5. Deep fry until golden brown and crisp.
  6. For the sauce, mix sugar, salt, mayonnaise, lemon squeeze and pepper. Stir thoroughly to blend well.
  7. Serve.

  • whole onions
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • buttermilk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Ranch or Thousand Island dressing


Cut onions into several sections, so they fan out like flowers. Be sure not to cut roots, so onion will stay together. Cover onions with buttermilk and refrigerate several hours. Mix dry ingredients together. Carefully remove onions from buttermilk and sprinkle dry mixture over onion, making sure entire onion is covered. Deep fry in a large fryer at 375 degrees F for 4 minutes. Onions may be dipped in Ranch or Thousand Island dressing
