I'm hooked on this dish, and no I won't apologize for my breath later either



1 cup plain flour

2 tablespoons cornmeal (self-rising or regular)

2 teaspoons sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 1/2 cups diced onions

1 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon table salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Oil for frying (approximately 1/3-1/2 cup)


Prepare the Mixture: Combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt, and black pepper in a spacious bowl.

Integrate the Onions: Ensure the diced onions are evenly integrated into the mixture.

Form the Batter: Add milk, melding until a thick, consistent batter is born.

Heat the Pan: Warm the oil in a skillet over a medium flame.

Shape and Fry: Gently deposit spoonfuls of batter into the hot oil, shaping them into slightly flattened patties.

Golden Brown Perfection: Fry until both sides boast a golden-brown hue.

Drain and Serve: Allow the patties a moment on paper towels to eliminate excess oil before serving warm.
