2 Cups Okra, stemmed and cut in half (about 20 pods of 3-4 inch okra)
1 Cup Gluten Free Cornmeal
1/4 Cup Milk (If you need an exchange use water or milk substitute)
1 ½ Teaspoons Salt
Enough oil to deep fry fritters.
Wash, stem and cut okra in half. Pour in food processor with the cutter blade inserted. Pulse 4-5 times until okra is chopped but not pureed. Add cornmeal, eggs, milk and salt. Blend just until mixed into dough. Heat oil on high until hot enough to fry. Reduce heat to medium, then drop fritter dough into hot oil and fry until golden brown. ( about 2-3 minutes) Be sure to turn each fritter when brown on bottom side. Also make sure fritter patty is only about 1/2 inch thick. The fritters will not cook well in the center if they are too thick. When done remove from oil and drain to paper towels. Enjoy
Variations: Add garlic powder, or chopped onions for a different taste.
Okra fritters are also great for dipping!
