How to Make Southern Okra Fritters
- In a medium to large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and pepper; stir until well blended.
- In a small bowl, whisk together egg, milk and canola oil until well blended. Add to the dry ingredients and beat until batter is well blended.
- In a large sauce pan, add oil and heat until a thermometer reaches 375 degrees. Add okra to the batter, stir to combine. Using a spoon, drop by the spoonful into the hot oil- do not over crowd (they will stick together if you do) until lightly browned - (it only takes a few seconds so watch carefully). When brown to your satisfaction, take out with slotted spoon and drain on a plated lined with paper towels.
