I must admit - I’ve never cooked okra before! So it was fun to experiment with it and get outside of my routine. I kept it pretty simple with an egg wash and breadcrumbs but it would be easy to add in some spice to the breadcrumbs to kick it up a notch.
My over arching message here- besides give this okra a try - next time you go shopping pick up a new fruit or veggie you’ve never eaten or cooked with before! Sure you could hate it, but you could also learn a new recipe or discover something delicious in the process!
Okra - you decide how much you want!
Flour for coating
Salt and pepper to taste
Wash/dry okra and remove ends
Chop into bite size chunks. I cut each into 4 segments
Prepare dredging station by placing out three bowls one with flour, one with egg, one with breadcrumbs
Season breadcrumbs with salt and pepper
Coat okra chunks in flour, then egg wash then breadcrumbs
Place in a single later in air fryer and fry on medium-high setting for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Enjoy on their own or dipped into your favorite condiment. I used a curry mustard and a honey BBQ sauce.
