Southern Style Green Tea Okra Pancakes


  • 1/2 cup stone ground white cornmeal

  • 1/2 cup all purpose organic flour

  • 1 1/2 tsp koshur salt

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 large egg lightly beaten

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion

  • 3 tsp of matcha powder

  • 2 cups thinly sliced okra

  • Vegetable Oil for frying

Prep Time: 10 min

Cooking Time: 15-20 min

Put the cornmeal, flour, 1 tsp of the koshur salt, matcha powder and baking powder in a mixing bowl, and stir well with a whisk to blend.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg and water, then stir into the dry ingredients, mixing only until moistened. Sprinkle the remaining tsp koshur salt and the freshly ground pepper over the onion and sliced okra, and toss lightly. Fold the vegetables into the batter.

Pour 1 inch of oil into a heavy skillet and heat to 340F. Spoon the okra batter by heaping tablespoons into the hot oil; do not overcrowd the pan. Fry until golden brown on one side, then carefully turn and continue frying until both sides are browned.

Remove from the skillet and drain well on a draining rack or crumpled paper towels.
