OKRA FRIES



Okra Fries image

Growing up, I hated okra. As I kid, I thought it was slimy and terrible. My first taste of okra fries didn't do much to dispel my childhood aversion. But I kept thinking, "How can I make okra fries good? You never get crispy okra fries." The key here was using cornstarch and rice flour. Cutting the okra in half from top to bottom, the seeds cling to the rice flour and cornstarch so the batter isn't going anywhere. Mariah Carey sampled these okra fries and said they were the best she'd ever had. The secret to this dish is letting the halved okra pods soak in eggs. Whatever you do, don't skip that part.

Categories     side-dish

Time 25m

Yield 6 to 8 servings

Number Of Ingredients 7

Vegetable oil, for deep-frying
1 pound okra, pods halved lengthwise
1 medium egg, beaten
3/4 cup rice flour
3/4 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
Kosher salt

Steps:

  • Pour a few inches of vegetable oil into a heavy-bottomed pot, preferably cast iron. Heat the oil to 350 degrees F.
  • Meanwhile, put the okra in a large bowl and toss with the beaten egg. Let the okra stand for 5 minutes to absorb the egg.
  • In a separate medium bowl, whisk the rice flour, cornstarch, paprika, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Remove the okra from the large bowl, allowing excess egg to drip back into the bowl, then transfer the okra to the flour mixture. Toss the okra to dredge evenly. Lift from the flour and shake off the excess.
  • Cook the okra in batches in the hot oil until golden and crunchy, 3 to 5 minutes, depending on size.
  • Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel-lined plate. Season with salt immediately. Repeat with the remaining okra.

AIR FRYER OKRA "FRIES"



Air Fryer Okra

I love the taste of deep-fried okra. Sometimes though, I want to limit my carbs, so I make okra "fries". They give me the flavor of fried okra, but with far fewer calories, and much less fat. Okra "fries" are a tasty snack and they can be an interesting veggie side for dinner. I love to munch them, plain, as a snack. Serve with dipping sauce of your choice.
