These okra chips can be enjoyed as a light snack, an interesting side or as the main component to your salad. We enjoyed ours with bao burgers and toasted peanuts, and to make them extra crispy we soaked them in water and vinegar for 15 minutes before baking them for around 20. The recipe and method for these chips is fairly self explanatory, but coat them in whatever spices you fancy!
We used one packet of okra for two, and coated ours in:
- Finely chopped garlic(about 2 cloves will do)
- Chilli powder
- A little bit of cumin.
(We also recommend roasting whole garlic cloves with the okra as these are delicious to eat whole!)
Start by preheating your oven to 250 degrees Celsius, then soak your okra in the water and vinegar mixture, as stated above, and stir every five minutes.
After 15 minutes, drain the water and pat the okra dry with paper towels.
Transfer the okra to a large mixing bowl and drizzle over some oil and sprinkle on salt, pepper and whatever other spices you have chosen. Toss with your hands to ensure that all is well covered, then transfer to a baking tray and sprinkle on your finely chopped garlic and your whole cloves.
Turn after 10 minutes and then remove after 20 minutes if they look crispy enough to you!
