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 340°F. 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.
