My favorite way to use okra, and besides...it is good. I usually make this in the summer when okra is plentiful, but I have also used frozen okra successfully. NOTE: I should have put this notice here before, but just didn't think! Okra should be chopped by hand. The food processor makes it way to slimey to work with.
- Combine okra, onion, salt, pepper, water, and egg and mix well.
- Mix flour, baking powder, and cornmeal and add to okra mixture, mixing well.
- Heat oil to medium-high, drop okra by heaping tablespoons into hot oil and cook until brown on both sides.
