We don't work much with okra. If we ever do, it's to add a few pods to sinigang.
So when I found a bag of okra in the fridge, I was a little bit at a loss on what to do. I do remember having seen them fried up on Good Eats a while back. Of course, I was too lazy to look up how Alton (first name basis) did this, so I winged it.
I cut the okra into rounds, dredged the rounds in cornmeal, and pan-fried them.
I may have fried them for a bit too long, because they shrunk significantly! Or, do they always shrink like so?
