oil for frying
To make the dip, mix the mayonnaise, ketchup, horseradish, paprika, black pepper, garlic powder, salt and cayenne pepper.
Peel the onion and slice it about 1 cm thick. Separate each ring and toss with the 1/4 cup of flour.
In a bowl mix the 1 cup flour, with the corn starch, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in the beer until it creates a smooth batter.
Heat the oil to 375F. Dip the onions, one ring at a time, in the batter then slowly drop in the hot oil. After about 45 seconds, flip the ring to the other side. The onion rings should be a golden brown on each side. Do not cook more than 4 or 5 onion rings at a time or they will bunch together.
Drain on paper towels. Serve with the dipping sauce.
