Okra Fry Bread

Ingredients

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

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together cornmeal, flour and salt.
  2. Whisk in water to make a thin batter.
  3. Stir in okra and onions.
  4. 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.
