Crispy Fried Okra

A few years ago, we went on vacation to London. We ate at a lovely restaurant called Dishoom. I tasted fried okra there after much coaxing since I just do not have a fondness for vegetables. One taste and I was popping those crispy fried okra like candy, savoring the delicious burst of flavor. Recently, my sister gave me an awesome birthday present - a cook book by Dishoom. I eagerly looked for the fried okra recipe and there it was to my delight. I’ve significantly altered the recipe to use ingredients readily available in my home. So I’m guessing it’s very different than the fried okra at Dishoom BUT it’s still SOOOO good. Try it.. you might be surprised by how addicting these crispy little treats are!
Enjoy!!

 

Ingredients

1 lb Okra (you can substitute okra with green beans or sliced green tomatoes)

1 tsp Garlic powder

1 tsp Ginger powder

½ tsp Anar Gourmet Foods Curry Powder

Olive oil for frying- just enough to coat pan

6 Tbsp Chickpea (Gram) Flour

4 Tbsp Corn Meal

½ tsp Sea Salt

½ tsp Paprika

½ Fresh Lemon

 

Recipe

  1. Wash okra, pat dry and cut off the top of okra. Slice each okra in half. Place into a bowl.
  2. Mix garlic, ginger and curry powder together along with 8 tablespoons of water. Pour over okra and mix well to coat each okra.
  3. Mix chickpea and corn meal together; sprinkle them over okra and gently fold in to coat each okra well.
  4. Heat oil in a pan over medium high heat.
  5. Fry okra in hot oil making sure okra is not bunched up and until they are crispy and golden (~ 5-7 mins).
  6. Use slotted spoon to scoop up okra from oil carefully and remove excess oil over paper towel.
  7. Sprinkle okra with sea salt, paprika and squeeze a few drops of fresh lemon over it.

 

Enjoy as a crispy delicious snack.

Delicious!

Like all the recipes we have tried, the spices were spot on and the ingredients list and instructions clear. Missing our favorite restaurants, we spent the last year trying to learn to cook new cuisines. Priya's mixes and directions have been so welcomed!

Thank you Margaret for your thoughtful review and awesome food photo! We so appreciate your feedback. I'm so thrilled that you and your family love my seasoning kits. Woohooo.. !!

Another great dish!

We absolutely love this dish! It is so easy to make, just like all of the other products! The flavors mesh so well together. We've had this both with rice and with chips for nachos. Both are excellent!! We will absolutely be ordering more!

Wonderful blend of Indian spices! The recipe was so quick and easy to follow! So delicious! Excellent customer service and communication as well. I met Priya at the Public Market in Wheeling, WV in Fall 2019 and loved her products immediately. Can’t wait to try all of the other recipes!

Delicious and easy to make!

Everyone in the family really enjoyed this meal (even the person who doesn't like potatoes). Cooking the egg into the sauce was a unique twist that we really liked. I actually added a second egg.

I made this twice and it was so easy that I could practically do it from memory the second time.

Emily!!!! Thank you so. much for this wonderful review! We are SO thrilled that even the person who didn't like potatoes loved this meal. That's awesome!! Thank you for this wonderful review!

A delicious addition

Thank you for adding butter chicken. We can't seem to get enough of Priya's spice blends. Looking forward to whatever is next!
