Dipping sauce:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons ketchup
2 tablespoons cream style horse radish
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
dash of ground black pepper
dash cayenne pepper

1 egg
1 cup milk
1 cup gluten free all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
1/8 teaspoon cumin
1 jumbo sweet yellow or white onion(3/4 pound or more)


Prepare the dipping sauce by combining all of the ingredients in a small bowl. Keep covered in refrigerator until needed

Beat the egg and combine it with the milk in a medium bowl big enough to hold an onion

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, peppers, paprika, oregano, thyme, and cumin

Now its time to slice the onion(the trickiest step)
First slice off 3/4 of an inch to an inch off the top and bottom of the onion. Remove the papery skin. Use a thin knife to cut a 1 inch diameter core out of the middle of the onion. Now use a very sharp, large knife to slice the onion several times down the center to create the petals of the completed onion. First, slice through the center of the onion to about 3/4 of the way down. Turn the onion 90 degrees and slice it again in an x across the first slice. Keep slicing the sections in half, very carefully, until you cut the onion 16 times. DO NOT CUT DOWN TO THE BOTTOM. The last 8 slices are a little tricky, just use a steady hand and dont worry if it doesnt look like a perfect will still taste good.

Spread the petals of the onion apart. The onion sections tend to stick together so you want to separate them to make coating easier. To help separate the petals put the onion into boiling water for a minute and then into cold water

Dip the onion into the milk mixture and then coat it liberally with the dry ingredients. Again, separate the petals and sprinkle the dry coating between them. Once your sure the onion is well coated, dip it back into the wet mixture and into the dry mixture. This double dipping makes sure you have a well coated onion because some of the coating tends to wash off when you fry it. Put the onion in the fridge for at least 15 minutes while you prepare the oil

Heat oil in a deep fryer or deep pot to 350 degrees. Make sure you use enough oil to completely cover the onion.

Fry the onion right side up in the oil for 10 minutes or until it turns brown

When the onion has browned , remove it from the oil and let it drain on a rack or paper towels

Open the onion wider from the center so that you can put the dipping sauce in the center.
