Fried Okra and Sautéed Crab

It can be interesting to find different ways to cook our indigenous foods. I tried fried Okra some days ago but it didn’t taste as great as I thought that it would. So, I decided to try it again. This time, I had looked through recipes and I came up with my own. Fried Okra is commonly eaten in the Southern parts of the US. It is not common to have fried Okra in Nigeria or Africa.

I had corn flour at home as well as semolina. I mixed the two flours and added some black pepper, dry pepper, and a sprinkle of salt. I sliced raw Okra fingers and dipped them into whisked eggs to soak. After a few minutes, I removed the Okra from the eggs and got them coated in the flour mix. I Fried the breaded okra in a little olive oil.

I was sent on an errand today to buy some fresh seafoods in a local market and I was attracted by the crabs that I saw so I got some. I decided to pair the crabs with my fried Okra.

Okra is a great vegetable containing quite a number of vitamins and minerals. Most of the time, okra is stewed in Nigeria and Africa but it can serve as a great snack too. The fried Okra was very delicious and it is a snack that has great benefits.

I offered the fried Okra and sautéed crab to one of my Toddlers and he was quick to say ‘No way’ but I was surprised that his Dad ate it with relish after his initial apprehension.
