Prepare a plate or a cookie sheet with paper towels to soak up the excess oil.
Pour oil in a deep pan. Heat up while mixing the breading mix. Oil needs to be very hot.
Wash okra. Dry and slice into 1/4 inch rounds.
Mix flour,salt and pepper in a elongated plastic bowl.
Sprinkle water with your hands to moisten the okra. Roll them in the breading mix.
Drop breaded okra into the hot oil. Do not overcrowd the pan.
Cook them until they have reached a golden brown color. This is about 3-5 minutes.
Remove the cooked okra from the pan and let them rest on the paper towel lined plate. Sprinkle with additional salt if you prefer.
