“These fried okra patties are made from fresh okra and onion in a cornmeal batter. A delightful southern-style snack.”


3 cups vegetable oil for frying

1 pound okra, finely chopped

1 cup finely chopped onion

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/2 cup water

1 egg

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 cup cornmeal


Heat 1 inch of oil in a large skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

In a large bowl, mix together the okra, onion, salt, pepper, water and egg. Combine the flour, baking powder and cornmeal; and stir that into the okra mixture.

Carefully drop spoonfuls of the okra batter into the hot oil, and fry on each side until golden, about 2 minutes per side. Remove with a slotted spoon, and drain on paper towels.
