Okra patties are a very southern food, if you are not from the South then you might want to avoid this dish becasue you could easily make it more difficult by adding things not needed. These are a simple and should remain so. Seasoning needed: sea salt and course ground black pepper.
Use fresh okra! I bought a homegrown okra from a local farm, from a mom and pop grocery store and had to double the mixture. Use a good, course corn meal. If you're looking for a low fat snack, don't try these. Use oil, preferably peanut oil. You don't have to use too much, just enough to be able to flip them over but keep them cooking. Using cooking spray, these will not taste the same. As a southern woman, my grandmother made these as a side for dinner, when I made this recipe (doubled and with fresh okara) they were very close to her recipe. Excellent. Don't forget the sea salt and course ground black pepper. no more seasonings needed to taste like a real okra patty. :) One thing I did differently was the whole wheat flour instead of white...could not taste the difference!
