Hubby and I went out for lunch with the family to a cafe that overlooked the water. A really pretty spot to while away a Sunday afternoon. Hubby’s brother is a regular at this cafe, and he ordered something called an onion mum. I’d seen the sign in the cafe advertising them and the fact that the cafe had sold 80,033 (plus one more after our order), but I had no idea what they were.
Behold! This is the onion mum. The onion is sliced, bread-crumbed and deep fried. A warm dip was placed inside. The final verdict – yummy.
Here is a video that shows the method for making an onion mum. It seems that the dish has varying names – onion blossom, onion flower, blooming onion and onion mum (short for chrysanthemum)
Have you eaten or made an onion mum?
