Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons Paula Deen's House Seasoning
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 6 cups oil, for frying
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 lbs fresh okra, sliced 1/2-inch thick
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk

Preparation

Heat oil in a large, heavy-bottomed skillet to 350°. (You may not need to use this much oil; do not fill the pan more than halfway up the sides with oil.)

 

In a medium bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, House Seasoning and cayenne pepper. Dip okra in buttermilk and then dredge in cornmeal-flour mixture to coat well. Carefully add okra to the hot oil, in batches as needed, and cook until golden brown. Remove from oil, drain on paper towels, and then serve immediately.

It is good but I

It is good but I like using a beaten egg instead of buttermilk. The batter sticks on better while frying.
