    Default Okra Fingers

    Okra Fingers

    20 small fresh Okra pods
    1 cup Buttermilk
    3/4 cup Flour
    1/4 cup Cornmeal
    1 teaspoon Baking Powder
    1/2 teaspoon Salt
    dash Pepper
    Vegetable Oil

    Wash okra and trim stems. Drain well and place in a shallow container. Pour buttermilk over the okra and set aside. Combine all the rest of the ingredients, except the oil, and mix well. Remove each okra pod from the buttermilk and carefully roll in cornmeal mixture. Drop into deep hot (375 degree) oil and fry 3 to 5 minutes, turning once. Drain. Serve and Enjoy!

    Note: paper towels work good for draining fried foods

    Thanks; Virginia

    Thanks for sharing this recipe Virginia. This saves time cutting them into slices. We love okra at my house. It's getting really close to being picked now. By the way can I freeze it until I'm ready to cook it?

    You can freeze Okra. I have never used frozen okra with this recipe. If I were going to freeze it with the intention of using it in this recipe; I think, I would freeze it already breaded and ready to drop in the oil. It would be an experiment. Hope this helps. Thanks; Virginia

    This will work with fresh sliced okra as well as with the pods.

    If it is already sliced and frozen (as I said I have never used frozen in this recipe) try just coating it and frying without allowing it to thaw (the water contact is what encourages the slime to come out).

    Hope this helps. Thanks; Virginia
