    Can you explain how onion is a spice? Onion powder sort of is, but honestly I see it more as substituting for real onions to get the flavor when you don't have actual onions or where the actual structural aspects of them would be inappropriate in a dish?

    This is fully based on my musings that if i had to like construct a dish from scratch by choosing limited amounts from categories Protein Source, Vegetable/Fruit, Carb and could add as many spices as I wanted I would class onion as a spice, not a vegetable bc for me onion and garlic are... seasonings mainly. Liberally applied seasonings that make up the basis for a shitton of my cooking because i'm a gremlin person and luv that bulb. like bear's leek is a seasoning too, even if the leaves are bigger than spinach in a lot of cases. idk. Maybe because I feel like onion is Mainly There For Taste and goes in many dishes without being like mentioned as a Featured Vegetable?

    imo they're a fritter, if they're anything other than a deep fried veg

    fritter vs dipped-and-fried item is probably established by the volume of carb to not-carb

    I'd call them exactly what you just did, a chip.

    Funyuns are too crisp to be a donut; donuts are fried but they have an essential soft center.
