1 c Self-rising flour
1 c Cornmeal
1/8 ts Salt
1/4 ts Baking soda
1 1/2 c Buttermilk — or as needed
1 md Onion — chopped
Fat — for deep frying
Sift together flour, cornmeal, salt, and soda. Add egg and buttermilk
until it’s the right consistency to hold its shape when rolled into a ball.
Mix in onion, then roll into balls about 1 to 2 inches across and drop in
deep hot fat. Fry until they’re brown and crispy. Let them drain a bit on
some paper and serve hot.
