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 cornmeal mix. Slice, toss, and fry. YUM!

For the self-rising cornmeal, I use Martha White brand cornmeal mix. For the okra, I like to use small okra pods. I like how crunchy the smaller slices get when they are fried. When slicing the okra, I discard the hard stems and the tips of the okra. I don’t like to eat those parts. If you like them, keep them in the mix. If you can’t find fresh okra, feel free to use frozen okra slices. Just make sure to thaw them before cooking.

  1. 2-Ingredient Fried ORKA? WOW! ­čÖé
    I could eat Okra like popcorn. Just keep it hot and keep it coming.

  2. I agree with discarding of the tips and stems. My grandma never used them. My daughter and I have learned to check each piece when getting them at restaurants. Apparently the people who prepare them for the customer have never eaten them or they would realize that the stem especially is not edible.

  3. 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!

  4. 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!!! :))

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