Cut onion into strips at about 1/2" across the onion
Batter: mix flour, cayenne, black and white pepper and sugar
Fill a small bowl with milk or buttermilk
Toss the onion strips in the flour, then the milk and then the flour again
Fry the petals in 1/2" of hot oil in a skillet, or bake in a 400-degree oven until crispy
Creamy Chili Sauce:
Combine 1 pint each mayonnaise and sour cream, ½ cup chili sauce and ½ tsp cayenne pepper. Optionally add ¼ C horseradish for extra kick.
