Crisp Fried Okra

Crisp Fried Okra

It is just as well that the kids didn't go to school this morning. Today is Open Day and attendance is optional. We came home late last evening and for some reason the Babies took turns to wake us up in the night (they had nightmares) and we were all quite exhausted this morning. I even had to leave my bed at dawn to sleep in the children's room. 4 in the bed were 2 too many.

I bought some fresh okra yesterday and decided to make some Crisp Fried Okra to go with the Beef Vindaloo. Hub kept going "you're cutting them too thinly!" when I was preparing the dish and I had to shoo him away. He always has something to say when you're cooking and it's rarely positive.

Crisp Fried Okra :

Fresh Okra
Ground Garam Masala
Oil for frying

Wash and dry the fresh okra.

Slice them thinly.

Heat up enough oil to cover a layer of sliced okra in a large non-stick frying pan.

Fry the okra in batches. Each batch should cover the bottom of the frying pan.

Fry till they turn a light brown. Remove and drain on kitchen towels.

Sprinkle salt and garam masala to taste and mix well. Hub loved it. Now he understands why I was slicing them thinly.

He reminds me of my father who never till this day, has anything good to say about anything I cook.
