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

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, baking powder, and sea salt.
  2. Combine the egg and water in another bowl.
  3. Pour the water and egg into the cornmeal, stir until smooth.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients. Mix till well distributed. ( Batter should be thick, wet, not dry.)
  5. In 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 )
  6. Drain on paper towels.
  7. Serve with your favorite condiments. They go well with sour cream and salsa. Enjoy!!!
