Directions

Step 1

Trim pointy end of onion at opposite end of root and then peel. Place onion, root up, on working surface. Starting ½ inch from root and using sharp knife, cut onion into 12 to 16 wedges, cutting straight down to working surface. Repeat with remaining onions.

Step 2

Turn onion over and gently separate cuts to form “petals.”

Step 3

In bowl, combine flour, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Dip onions into buttermilk, letting excess drip off. Then, dip onions into flour mixture, making sure all sides of the onions are evenly coated. Let excess drip off.

Step 4

In large Dutch oven, add enough vegetable oil to cover onions. Heat oil to 350°F. Add onions in batches, cooking about 3 minutes per side until golden and crisp.

Step 5

Using slotted spoon, remove to paper towel-lined plate to soak up excess oil.

Step 6

In small bowl, combine yogurt, mustard, chives, cornichons, salt and pepper. Serve sauce with onions for dipping.
