Fried Okra With Cumin Yogurt Dipping Sauce
Try these hearty fried okra bites dunked in creamy, tangy Greek yogurt sauce. Nuggets goes vegetarian! Enjoy!
Prepare the dipping sauce: mix yogurt with garlic, cumin and Sriracha (if using). Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until just before serving.
Heat oil in a large, heavy-bottomed skillet.
In a medium bowl, combine cornmeal, flour and paprika.
Dip okra in buttermilk first and then dredge in cornmeal-flour mixture. Coat well.
Carefully add the okra to the hot oil and fry until golden-brown and okra is cooked through.
Remove from oil and drain on paper towels.
Serve hot with dipping sauce.
