Golden, crispy, crunchy and completely addictive, this Fried Okra Recipe is equipped with amazing flavor thanks to a seasoned flour that can't be beat!
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, kosher salt, pepper, paprika, mustard powder, and garlic powder, and stir to combine. Set aside until ready to use.
Combine the milk, egg, and hot sauce in a medium-sized mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Add the cut up okra, stir to coat, and set aside.
Add the oil to a large frying pan and place it over medium-high heat to come to temperature, between 350-375°. Have ready a rimmed sheet pan lined with paper towels.
Transfer the okra from the wet mixture to the dry mixture, allowing any excess liquid to drip off. Then, stir to coat in the seasoned flour.
Fry the okra in two batches, adding a single layer of okra to the hot oil each time. Cook each batch for 4-5 minutes, stirring often. Once the okra is golden brown, use a slotted spoon (or skimmer) to transfer it to the prepared pan and allow to cool slightly. Serve and enjoy!
