  1. Sift together flour, cornmeal, salt, and soda. Add the beaten egg and buttermilk until it's the right consistency to hold its shape when rolled into a ball.
  2. Mix in onion, then roll into balls about 1 to 2 inches across and drop in deep hot fat.
  3. Fry until they're brown and crispy.
  4. Let them drain a bit on some paper and serve hot.
