Kaye’s Okra Fry Bread

  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 10 minutes
  • Servings: 10


  • 1 (16 oz) bag sliced into 1/2-inch rounds frozen whole okra
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup self rising flour
  • 1 cup plain cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup chopped (or spring onions) Vidalia onions
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon plus more as needed clarified butter


In a large bowl, whisk together cornmeal, flour and salt. Whisk in water to make a thin batter. Stir in okra and onions.

Over medium heat, add clarified butter to a cast iron skillet. Use a small ladle to pour batter onto skillet. Pan should be hot enough to make batter sizzle. Cook until underside is browned, about 3 to 4 minutes, then flip and brown on the other side. Repeat with additional batter, adding more butter as necessary.
