2-Ingredient Fried Okra

 I can just eat this fried okra like popcorn. It is my all-time favorite vegetable! I can eat an obscene amount of it in a short amount of time. I just love it. This recipe couldn't be any simpler. It only has two ingredients! Fresh okra and self-rising buttermilk corn meal mix. I use Martha White brand corn meal mix.

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.

  • 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.

  1. I love it, too, but try putting in a couple of diced potatoes before adding the cornmeal mix! You'll love it even more!!

  2. I like to put the cornmeal in a grocery bag..paper is better but I use the plastic ones also (double bag) then add okra and shake shake what ya mama gave ya!!! :))

  3. The coating on your okra looks perfect and we have to be tried here.

  4. My mom used to make fried okra like that also. I miss her cooking. I lost her in Dec 2003.

  5. that looks so good! I just "discovered" fried okra a few years ago, and now I eat it every chance I get. I'm going to try this the next time I can find some small okra. thanks!
