crispy fried okra crispy fried okra

I love crispy fried okra and can't wait to munch on them. So I have a few while cooking them. It is a great way to cook okra without getting the slimy juice. I like dipping the okra in chili fish sauce, but my father likes it better with just soy sauce.

For all readers from the southern US who may be wondering: yes, this is a Thai dish. My family has eaten okra for as long as I can remember.

3 -4 Servings, Prep Time: 15 Minutes, Total Time: 15 Minutes
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 lb okra
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 cup water

Tips and Techniques

For a vegetarian version, dip the okra in soy sauce instead of chili fish sauce.

It is best to cook this dish last if you are preparing other dishes to retain the crispiness.

When it's time to reheat crispy fried okra (and other fried foods) a toaster oven or oven at low heat will return its crispiness, but a microwave will make it soggy.
