Southern Fried Okra, a simple Southern classic, okra dredged in self-rising cornmeal, then fried until golden. Want to know the simple secret to keeping okra crisp on the outside while tender on the inside?
Okra has always had a special place in my heart – yes, I know that sounds strange, but let me explain! I grew up in Tennessee, and fried okra was a Sunday dinner staple! My Grandma would pre-cook the okra before we left for church on Sunday morning.
