Tobacco Onions - Recipe and How to make properly!

My First Attempt at making Tobacco Onions was a total disaster.
So Hopefully you can learn from my mistakes.

Here is  the recipe:

5 cups peanut or other light oil

2 large yellow or sweet onions, and red onions as well tho optional
peeled and sliced EXTREMELY, very thin

1 cup  flour

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

They are just deep fried onions in flour mix with pepper. but i cut them way too thick and the flour didnt really stick that well either
Cut the onion in half and thinly shred - - dip in seasoned (pepper a must) Self Raising flour and deep fry a few a time so they fry properly and dont stick together - do it until golden brown, drain on kitchen paper.

If you soak the onions in milk before you start, that'll make them stringy the way tobacco onions are meant to be.

However - dont do what I did and re-fry any of them to re-heat as it makes a pulp.  Keep them warm in the oven until you have them all cooked.
