When I was younger I was not an okra fan! You couldn’t pay me to eat it! As I’ve gotten older, I have discovered the benefits of using okra to thicken gumbo’s and stews but the way I really love it, is fried! Not only does it make a great side dish but an appetizer as well!
DEEP FRIED OKRA
meal mixture (equal parts of corn meal and flour)
Soak okra in milk for 30-60 minutes. Roll in meal mixture. Add salt and pepper. Deep fry in hot oil until golden brown.
That’s it, a little messy but very easy and taste delicious!
