Fried Okra

“We were literally eating this like popcorn as soon as it was ready.  This batter gives the okra a nice crunch.” ncagr


1 pound fresh okra, cut into ½ inch thick slices

¾ cup buttermilk

1 ½ cups self-rising white cornmeal mix

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon sugar

¼ teaspoon ground red pepper

Vegetable oil


Combine the okra and buttermilk in a bowl. 

In another bowl, stir together the cornmeal, salt, sugar and red pepper. 

Dredge the okra in the cornmeal to coat. 

Place the okra in a wire-mesh strainer to shake off any excess.

Heat the vegetable oil in a heavy bottom pot to 1 inch deep until it reaches 375 degrees. 

Fry the okra in batches until golden brown, turning to cook on all sides if necessary. 

Drain on a paper towels.

Sprinkle with salt while hot.
