Here is the simple but tasty Fried Okra and Potato Recipe. Thank you Mama Sapp.
Cut up in small pieces: some okra. some potato. (Last night I used about 20 okra, I think, and two large potatoes.) Coat them with corn meal, salt, and pepper in a bag. Fry in oil in a large skillet. Try not to put in more than will cover the bottom of the skillet at one time. The amount I made took two batches. Yummy!!
But be careful with the hot oil. I am really bad at frying on the stovetop. I can never get the temperature of the oil just right and usually end up splattering oil all over my wall, floor, etc. It happened again last night - yikes!
