We been thinking about this for a while... to feature foodies made from our local products within our blog. Since it's okra season here in Iloilo, we decided to kick off with recipes made from our locally produced okra.
- 10 pods okra, sliced in 1 inch pieces
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/2 cup Bread Crumbs
- 1/2 cup APF
- Ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup Olive/vegetable oil
1. In a small bowl, soak okra in egg for 5 to 10 minutes. In a medium bowl, combine Bread crumbs, APF, salt, and pepper.
2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Dredge okra in the Breading mixture, coating evenly. Carefully place okra in hot oil; stir continuously. Reduce heat to medium when okra first starts to brown, and cook until golden. Drain on paper towels. Serve while it's hot.
*To those who prefer a bit spicy version. You can add chilli flakes or powder to the breading mixture.
