Using Rice Bran oil makes a very light deep fry. RB Oil has a high smoke temperature and can be reused up to 10 times. It is also loaded with nutrition compared to other fry oils. (It's considered a nutraceutical. I discovered it via Google.) Prep and Cooking time will vary. I have a small electric deep fryer so it took awhile to cook all the batches. I only added 6 string beans at a time. Same with the Okra. Otherwise, the vegetables will drift and stick together.
