  • Fried Okra

    Anyone have a good tried and true recipe for fried okra...we don't like buttermilk so it can't have that in it. Thanks for any help.

    Fried Okra Recipe
    SERVES 6

    1 bag frozen cut-up okra (or equal amount of fresh okra cut up)
    1-2 cup flour
    1-2 cup cornmeal
    salt and pepper
    5 eggs, beaten
    Heat about 1/4-inch of cooking oil in a frying pan.
    Season flour/cornmeal with salt and pepper to taste.
    NOTE: Flour and cornmeal may be mixed together or applied separately, and some recipes use only one or the other.
    IF FLOUR AND CORNMEAL ARE MIXED: dredge okra in beaten eggs, then dredge in flour-cornmeal mixture.
    IF FLOUR AND CORNMEAL ARE APPLIED SEPARATELY: dredge okra in flour, then egg, then cornmeal.
    Place okra in heated oil and fry on medium heat until golden brown Stir occasionally so all sides get browned.
    Drain on a paper towel and enjoy.

          I just slice my okra, add cornmeal to your liking in a bowl, coat okra well. Heat oil in a skillet to 350 degrees. Add mealed okra and fry until browned to your liking. Season when you put it on your plate; salt, pepper or creole seasoning.

                I doubt very seriously that you would taste the buttermilk. It certainly helps the cornmeal, etc. adhere to the okra. Personally, I think it helps keep the grease out of the veggie.

                  My favorite is small, young okra pods - whole - dipped in buttermilk then in self rising flour and deep fry! Sooo good!

                    I do it like Damar does it, only I season it before putting it in cornmeal. I find that breaded okra stays slimy inside. I like mine crunchy.
