Fried Okra


  • 1 pound fresh okra
  • 1 cup self-rising cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup vegetable oil (for frying)

Rinse the okra and dry with a paper towel. Cut the pods into 1/2 inch pieces, remove the tops. In a bowl, mix together the cornmeal, flour, and salt. Add the okra pieces to the bowl, stirring to coat with the cornmeal mixture, and then let sit for a few minutes. Stir again. When the breading clings to the okra, shake the bowl -- excess breading will go to the bottom. Heat the oil over medium heat in a frying pan large enough to allow the okra room to cook evenly. Spoon the okra out of the bowl with a slotted spoon and fry in the hot oil until browned all over, about 10 to 15 minutes. Drain the okra on paper towels before serving.
