Crispy Okra Is A Wonderful Tasty Vegetable For Your Meal

Crispy okra is so yummy with a flavour that is amazing.  Fresh okra with a beautiful golden brown color and a crunchy texture is a special addition to any meal! Also, it is gluten-free and vegan too, no eggs or wheat flour. This is for sure my favourite okra recipe.
