I like to use small okra pods for my fried okra. I like how crunchy the smaller slices get when fried. I also discard the stems and tips of the okra when I slice it. I don't like to eat those parts. If you like them, keep them in mix. I could eat this whole recipe all by myself! It is absolutely delicious! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
2-Ingredient Fried Orka
- 1 lb okra
- 1 cups self-rising buttermilk cornmeal mix
- vegetable oil
Rinse okra and slice into 1/4-inch slices. Discard stems and tips. Rinse sliced okra in colander. Shake off excess water. Transfer okra slices to bowl. Pour cornmeal mix over okra. Toss to cover all okra slices.
Pour oil to a depth of 2 inches in a Dutch oven or large skillet. Heat oil to 375 degrees. Fry okra in batches until golden brown, about 5-8 minutes.
