This is such an easy way to make fried okra. And our garden is very productive in this vegetable. Just wish our tomatoes were this productive.
½ cup all purpose flour
2 cups fresh or frozen okra cut in circles
½ cup finely chopped onion
1 large egg
¼ cup buttermilk
salt and pepper to taste
oil for frying
Heat oil in heavy skillet, just enough to cover the bottom of the skillet good. In bowl mix flour, salt and pepper.
Coarsely chop okra.
Add onion and okra toss to coat.
In small bowl mix together egg and buttermilk and add to okra mixture and stir just until combined.
Drop batter in med hot skillet in about ¼ cup mound and then flatten the okra mound with a spatula and fry until golden brown. Usually takes about 4 to 5 minutes per side, if browning to quickly may need to lower the heat, turn only once.
Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with a little salt. Makes about ten fritters. Can dip in a dipping sauce of your choice.
