Okra and Chive Fritters or Okra Jaipuri

It’s hard to stop munching these crunchy fritters…

This is the first time I made fritters out of okra. Fried okra in yogurt (Pachadi, a kerala side dish) is one of my favorite side dishes. Other than this I often make stir fries using okra. I don’t like to buy frozen okras, I need the okra to be fresh and crisp. Fresh okras are always available in some of the Indian stores and in Asian supermarkets.

You can find a lot of Indian recipes using okra. The other day, while searching for a kool okra recipe, I came across Vahchef’s Okra Jaipuri. It was an easy recipe and hence thought of trying it. I had chives too, so used both okra and chives to make the fritters. You could use just the okra.
