The 7 Healthy Chips Week, Day 03: Batter Baked Okra

When I decided to make these I was super skeptical. Would they turn out fine? Would the sticky goop that comes from cutting up the veg allow it to be baked well? This and that! However, once I baked them, they were the best things I’d ever eaten. Light, crunchy and cooked right through. These served as excellent finger food for T and accompanied rather well with our afternoon chai.

Method:

  • Wash and towel dry the Okra
  • Cut them in thin slices
  • Create a semi-dry batter by mixing all the ingredients
  • Mix really well the cut okra in it
  • Pop into the oven for about 10 – 15 mins on 200°C
  • Toss them around once to avoid burning
  • Remove from oven once they have started to crisp and let them rest
  • Serve them to your toddler when cool and pop some yourself, with chai or coffee!

Note:

  • Please keep a watch, for they burn easy
  • These will not remain crunchy for long so consume immediately
