1 medium sized yellow onion
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbs. high quality instant potato pearls (the brand we get has no fillers, just potato, salt, and milk)
1 large egg
1 cup water
2 inches cooking oil
Get the oil heating in a heavy pan, over medium heat.
Skin and julienne the onion from stem to bud, to make onion “sticks”.
Place the potato pearls into your blender and turn it into fine powder. Whisk it together with the other dry ingredients. Add the water and egg, and whisk into a lump-free batter. Add the julienned onion.
Use a fork to transfer the onions from the batter to the hot oil. Fry until medium brown. Transfer to a paper towel covered plate. Serve on top of your burger with whatever other toppings you want.
