Southern Fried Okra is a southern classic! Fried until golden brown, crunchy and super addicting! Great for dipping! This recipe is tried and true and will not disappoint!
I love picking up a pound of fresh okra from my local supermarket! When you choose your okra, it should feel firm but not hard to the touch. Try to look for bright green pods with little to no blemishes. A little brown is fine but remember, the greener the fresher!
It’s not a hugely popular fruit that many people buy up here where I live now, so not all shops stock it fresh, but I have found it numerous times depending on the market I go to. The buttermilk in the recipe helps keep the batter on and the garlic & seasonings give it an amazing flavor.
Are you a fan of okra? I would assume you are since you’re visiting the recipe today! If you dont usually like okra, you need to try it deep fried, seriously.
It makes a delicious side dish for numerous different meals!
Fried Okra not only is delicious but its high in fiber, low in calories and high in several antioxidants as well! Most notably, it contains polyphenols that may contribute to your heart and brain health. Frying it gives you all the flavor with all of its benefits!
