- Slice the stem end and the root end off onion, then, with the onion resting on a flat side, cut down through the onion, slicing it in half.
- Slice each half 4 to 5 more times in a spoke fashion to create wedges of onion.
- Separate the onion pieces.
- Create batter by combining all dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
- Whisk in milk until batter is smooth then let the batter sit for 5 minutes.
- It should thicken.
- Whisk batter again.
- When oil is hot dip each onion piece in the batter, let some of the batter drip off then drop the coated onion piece carefully into the hot oil.
- Repeat, frying 8 to 12 at a time for 1 to 2 minutes or until light brown.
- Drain on a rack or paper towels.
- Repeat until the onion is used up, stacking the newer batches on top of the old ones to keep them warm.
- When they're all done, serve the fried onion slices on a plate or in a paper-lined basket with horseradish dipping sauce on the side.
