Paula's Fried Okra Fried okra is sometimes called Southern popcorn. Paula makes hers like she does fried pork chops, moistening the okra with a little buttermilk and then dredging it in flour before deep-frying it.
Roasted Okra, this was fantastic!!!!! I roasted it at 425 for close to 30 minutes, since I used frozen okra, stirred it half way through and then sprinkled with more salt before serving, seriously could eat this like popcorn! My husband loved it too, and he doesn't like okra.
