Prep Time: 15 min Total Time: 15 minutes
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup all purpose flour
1 lb okra
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1/2 cup water
Tips and Techniques: For a vegetarian version, dip
the okra in soy sauce instead of chili fish sauce. It is best
to cook this dish last if you are preparing other dishes to

Mix all the flours, baking powder and water
together. Stir and mix well. Drop the okra in.
Heat up a cup of oil in a wok or frying pan over
medium heat. Test the oil with a drop of batter; the
batter should puff up right away.
Coat each piece of okra with the batter and drop it
in the pan. Fry until lightly brown.
