prep time: 5 MINUTES

cook time: 10 MINUTES

total time: 15 MINUTES


▢1 pound okra, caps and tips cut off and sliced (about 20)

▢1 egg
▢1/4 cup milk
▢1/2 cup all-purpose flour
▢1/2 cup cornmeal
▢1/2 tsp salt
▢1/4 tsp pepper
▢Oil spray


Preheat air fryer to 400 F (200 C).

In a shallow bowl combine egg and milk.

In another bowl combine flour, cornmeal, salt, and pepper.

Toss okra into the egg mixture, then transfer in batches to flour mixture. Lightly shake off excess flour and transfer to Air Fryer Basket. Depending on your Air Fryer you might have to fry in batches.

Spray okra with oil spray and air fry for 10-12 minutes until golden, shaking the basket two times during cooking. Spray with more oil as needed so all the floury spots are covered.

Remove okra and sprinkle with salt to taste. Serve hot with Ranch or other dipping sauce.
