      1/3 C. Cornstarch
      3/4 C. Flour

      1 tsp. Paprika

      1/2 tsp. Pepper

      Seasoned Flour:
      1 C. Flour
      2 tsp. Paprika
      1 tsp. Garlic powder
      1/4 tsp. Pepper
      1/8 tsp. Cayenne pepper

      Mix cornstarch, flour, and seasonings until well blended. Add beer, mix well. Cut about 3/4" off top of onion and peel. Cut into onion 12 to 16 vertical wedges, but do not cut through bottom root end.
