Okra Fritters

Yields1 Serving

 10 pieces of Okra
 1 Scotch Bonnet
 2 small pieces of Ginger
 2 Spring Onions
 50 g Flour
 1 Egg
 2 pinches of Salt
 2 pinches of Pepper
 3 ml Olive Oil

Finely slice the Okra and Scotch Bonnet. Remove the Scotch Bonnet seeds before slicing


Grate the ginger and finely slice the spring onion


Put all of the ingredients except egg, salt and oil into a large mixing bowl.


Mix and squeeze the contents of the bowl well to release the juice from the okra.


Add the egg, salt and pepper and mix well to combine the ingredients. The moisture levels will depend on your flour of choice so add a bit more flour if too moist or a drop of water if too dry.


Form small - medium size balls with the mix and press them flat into discs.


Add the oil and fry on a low to medium heat. Turn after every few minutes to ensure that they cook throughout and to avoid burning.


Remove when golden brown all over and enjoy as a snack or a side dish.
