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...:))

How to Make Down Home Okra Fritters

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!!!
