  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. Peel the onions and cut off the top and bottom, leaving the onion whole.
  2. Make vertical cuts into the onion, stopping about 1/4 inch from the bottom, so the onion remains intact.
  3. In a bowl, mix the flour, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper.
  4. Dip each onion into the buttermilk and then coat it generously with the seasoned flour mixture.
  5. Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large pot to 375°F (190°C).
  6. Carefully place the coated onions into the hot oil and fry until golden brown and crispy, about 4-5 minutes.
  7. Remove the fried onion blossom from the oil and let it drain on paper towels.
