This next recipe just too good to be true! For those of you, who just love onion rings the Blooming Onion recipe will be a delight. It’s more an appetizer than an actual dish, but it tastes great and can be consumed by vegetarians too. It is called the Blooming Onion because it looks just like a blooming flower. So to make it, you will need:

• 1 egg;
• 1 cup of milk;
• 1 cup of flour;
• 1 and a half teaspoons of salt;
• 1 and a half teaspoons of cayenne pepper;
• half teaspoon of black pepper;
• half teaspoon of garlic (powder);
• a quarter teaspoon of herbs;
• 2 big onions;
• canola oil;

Take one onion and start peeling them, then cut off the side without the root, closer to the half of the onion. After they are peeled, place them under water to clean them. Dry them using a paper towel, and start cutting the onion in 16 or 32 equal pieces (cut diagonally). Now to achieve the flower look, you will have to gently separate the onion pieces. You should place it in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours, this will help you in the process. Take out a bowl and combine the salt with the flour, the peppers and the herbs. Pour the flower on the onion and make sure to cover between the buds too. Combine the milk with the eggs and put the onion in the mixture and cover it again with the flour. Pour oil into the frying pan and place the onion inside. Make sure to add enough oil to cover the whole onion. Place the onion upside down in the pan and fry for 2-3 minutes, until it becomes golden brown. Now turn it on the other side and fry again for 2-3 minutes. Place it on a paper towel and remove the center of the onion, using a sharp knife. The dipping sauce will be placed here. You can add any kind of dip you like, just place it inside the onion and enjoy this cool appetizer.

    If you place a flat chopsticks on each side of the onion when cutting it, they will stop your knife from cutting all the way through.

      Just put what you would normally put in a breading, maybe some oregano and basil. This recipe was clearly not written for people who don’t do a lot of cooking.
