Rinse clams and allow to sit under refrigeration for several hours in a combination of 1/2 cup each of milk and water combined with 1/2 teaspoon salt.
Combine well the all purpose flour, fine corn flour and onion powder in a shallow dish.
Drain clams briefly and dip in mixture. Deep fry in hot oil, about 365 degrees, until golden brown but not crisp. Fry a few at a time until you have the right temperature. Don't add too many at once because this will lower the temperature too quickly.
Drain on clean paper towels and season to taste with salt and pepper while hot.
