2 cups cornmeal
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1/2 cup grated onion
1/4 cup sliced green onion
1 large egg yolk
1 cup buttermilk
6 large egg whites
Canola oil, for frying

1. In a large bowl, whisk together cornmeal, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir in onions. Combine egg yolk and buttermilk; stir into cornmeal mixture until combined.

2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat egg whites until stiff. Gently fold into cornmeal mixture.

3. Fill a large deep skillet with 2 to 3 inches oil. Heat oil until it reaches 375 on a deep-fry thermometer. Working in batches, drop batter, 1 teaspoon at a time, into the oil and cook, turning once, until the hush puppies rise to the surface and are golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Serve immediately.
