Or you can call this Okra tempura. Maybe, some people don’t like okra because it’s slimy and its thin layer makes it difficult to eat. But I am sure, if you know how to prepare it right, you will definitely find how delicious it is. Let’s try a simple recipe of Okra.

Time spent : 15 mins

  • I don’t add egg in tempura batter this time to make the taste lighter, but you can plus egg if you like.
  • While frying, okra can stick together, do not try to separate them because you can make the batter mess up. After fried well, you will separate easily.
