Ingredients

1/3 cup minced onion

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup yellow cornmeal

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus more for sprinkling

1 1/2 teaspoons sugar

2 teaspoons onion powder

1 large egg

1 cup whole milk

Vegetable oil, for frying

Directions

  1. Combine the onion, flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, sugar and onion powder in a bowl. Whisk the egg and milk in another bowl. Whisk the egg mixture into the flour mixture until smooth. Cover and chill 30 minutes.
  2. Heat 2 inches vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 350 degrees F. Working in batches, carefully drop heaping tablespoonfuls of batter into the hot oil. Fry, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 8 minutes per batch (return the oil to 350 degrees F between batches). Transfer to a paper towel-lined baking sheet using a slotted spoon. Sprinkle with salt. Let rest a few minutes before serving.
