Who knew okra could taste this good? With just a few ingredients, turn okra into a mouth-watering side dish.
Mix the yogurt and milk. Put the okra cylinders into the yogurt/milk mixture and cover them. Leave them in the mixture for 5 minutes.
Gently move the okra pieces to the cornmeal and spoon the cornmeal over them until they are completely covered. Using the spoon (not your hands as the yogurt/milk mixture topped with cornmeal is soft and will dislodge off the okra if you handle it too much), put the okra pieces on a plate in a single layer.
After you brown the okra pieces on all sides, carefully remove them to the paper towel-covered plate and let them cool down a bit.
For the sauce, simply use a bit of the leftover yogurt/milk mixture and add a few drops of hot sauce or other tangy condiment. I tried prepared horseradish and that was delicious. German or Dijon mustard should work too.
