2 pound onions -- cut into 1/4-inch
1 slices and separated into rings
1/2 cup unsifted all purpose flour
4 cups vegetable oil for deep-fat frying
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon chili powder

Preparation / Directions:

In large plastic food storage bag, toss half of the onion rings and half of the flour until well mixed. Heat oven to 200F. Line a baking sheet with paper towels. In a 4-quart pan, heat 2 inches oil to 350F on a deep fat thermometer. In a cup, mix salt, red pepper, cumin and chili powder. Drop floured onions rings, a handful at a time, in hot oil. (Do not fry too much at a time because the oil will bubble up.) Fry, turning them once, until crisp and lightly browned-about 2 minutes. Drain onions on paper towels and transfer to paper-lined baking sheet. Repeat to fry remaining floured onions. Sprinkle fried onions lightly with half of salt mixture and place in oven to keep warm. Toss remaining onions with remaining flour. Fry onions as above and sprinkle with remaining salt mixture. After all onions are fried, mound them high on a small serving plate.
