Southern Fried Okra
Sometimes you just need good old fashioned foods like Fried Okra, this is so crisp and seasoned just right.
What you need:
1 1/2-2 pounds okra, sliced in 1/4 inch pieces
1 cup Buttermilk
1 cup cornmeal
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup vegetable oil in a large skillet or use a deep fryer
Soak okra in buttermilk 5 - 10 minutes and then dredge in cornmeal-flour mixture to coat well. Carefully add okra to the hot oil and cook until golden brown. (It may be necessary to fry the okra in batches.) Remove from oil, drain on paper towels, and then serve immediately.
