Onion Crisp Fried Okra

On Friday, we went to a friend’s house for dinner and toddler girl was going to her first sleepover.  At dinner, our wonderful host made some wonderful fried okra.  The next day, B decided to make his own version of fried okra and also grill some pork chops.

Finely crush the French’s Fried Onion. Mix the flour, corn meal, and crushed French’s Friend Onion together in a bowl.  Add seasonings to taste, for an extra kick add red pepper or chipotle chile pepper.  Mix all the ingredients together well. Melt the butter in the microwave and once melted pour over slightly thawed okra.  Make sure to coat all the okra with butter.  Once okra is covered in butter, add the okra to flour/corn mean mixture, getting all the okra covered.

      It was very yummy! Easy to make at home. I have seen it here a few times in Japan, but it tempura batter. And with the tempura batter and it’s just not the same.
