Blooming onion batter won't stick!

On my phone so ill keep this short. I used this recipe and the sauce and batter tasted right, but the flour mixture and batter just fell right off. I fried it anyway and was left with a severely disappointing blooming onion.

Any ideas on how to make batter stick better?

One of the reviews suggested leaving the batter on for 10 minutes before frying. And I wonder if letting the onion dry thoroughly before battering after dipping it in boiling then cold water might help.

I have a slightly different recipe, nearly the same, but it also says to let the onion rest in the refrigerator for 15 minutes before frying.

Try dusting the onion very lightly with flour before coating it with the batter.

Don't salt the batter.
If there is salt in the batter, it will not stick well.
