Fried Okra Fritters
(Shared recipe submitted by Edwina Price Snyder.)
- 1 cup sliced okra
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon margarine or butter
- Black pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup yellow cornmeal (not a mix)
- 1 slightly beaten egg
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- Cooking oil for frying
Boil okra in the water with the salt until nearly all the liquid is absorbed. Do not scorch! Add margarine and black pepper to taste and mash with a fork or break up in a food processor or food chopper. Cool and then add the slightly beaten egg.
Mix together the cornmeal, flour and baking powder and place in a medium sized bowl. Add the okra mixture and mix well. (More cornmeal can be added if needed.) Drop by teaspoons full into hot cooking oil and fry until brown on all sides. Serve hot.
