My family loves these fritters with Chili, Red beans and rice, or just as a snack with sour cream. They eat them up as fast as I can fry them..lol! Sometimes I make them spicier,add fresh corn, cayenne pepper, etc... just play with the recipe..you can't go wrong..

Enjoy...:))

Ingredients

2 c
yellow corn meal
2 tsp
baking powder
1
egg
1 1/2 c
water
8 - 10 oz
okra, sliced about 1/4 inch thick
1 large
jalapeno, diced small
3 clove

2 Tbsp
onion, diced small
1/4 tsp

Step-By-Step

1In a large bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, baking powder, and sea salt.
2Combine the egg and water in another bowl.
3Pour the water and egg into the cornmeal, stir until smooth.
4Add the remaining ingredients. Mix till well distributed. ( Batter should be thick, wet, not dry.)
5In a skillet, ( I use my cast iron ) heat oil on medium. For larger fritters, measure out about 1/4 cup of batter. Pour into the hot oil. Fry the cakes until the bottoms are brown and bubbles form on the tops and edges. About 3 minutes on each side.

( Add more oil as needed as you fry your fritters )
6Drain on paper towels.
7Serve with your favorite condiments. They go well with sour cream and salsa. Enjoy!!!
