Okra. I have never made anything with okra, nor have a really had a hankering to do so. But it was one of my vegetables in my CSA share so I thought I'd give it a try. If I had time this weekend, I would have preferred to attempt to make a gumbo, but I'm short on time so I did the second .. more >

Directions:

1

Add 1 cup buttermilk, 1 large egg, 1 seeded and minced jalapeño chili and 1/4 cup minced scallions to a medium bowl.

2

Whisk to combine.

3

Prepare the okra. Trim off both ends.

4

Cut the pods into 1/2 inch pieces and place into the buttermilk mixture.

5

Mix together so that the okra is coated. Marinate at room temperature for 15 minutes.

6

While the okra is marinating, mix 1 tablespoon of salt and 1 tablespoon smoked paprika in a small bowl.

7

In another bowl, mix 2 cups cornmeal and 1 teaspoon salt.

8

Heat 1/2 inch of vegetable oil in a medium frying pan to 375 degrees. Take a few pieces of okra out of the buttermilk mixture at a time, shaking to remove excess mixture, and toss in the cornmeal. In batches, drop the okra into the oil and fry for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until golden.

9

Drain on paper towels.

10

Sprinkle with the paprika-salt mixture and serve.

Okra has a mild flavor and a somewhat unusual texture. One of the best ways to prepare this vegetable is to steam and dress it with a tangy and spicy sauce.

Udupi Sambhar is one of the most yummy lentil recipe and many who are aware of the flavors will vote for it above all other Sambhar Recipes available. The key to the recipe is the fresh made sambhar masala paste, yes you read it right, rather than the powder. For the authentic sambhar taste, you need to use the Byadaki Chilies rather than any other dry red chili. These chilies are not extremely ..
