Tortang Okra (Okra Omelette)
You can serve Tortang Okra as a vegetable side as part of a bigger meal, or on its own with a bowl of rice and some soy or fish sauce on top.
What you'll need
Spatula or spoon
2 cups Okra thinly sliced (about 1/2 pound okra)
1/4 cup Green Onion finely chopped or 1/4 cup White Onion finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
1/4 cup Rice Flour or 1/4 cup Cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon Chili Powder optional
4 teaspoons Canola Oil for frying
In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs. Add okra, garlic powder, black pepper, salt, chili powder (if using) and rice flour.
Gently stir until combined.
Heat 4 teaspoons oil in a 12-inch skillet. Put about 3 tablespoons okra mixture and form into a round circular patty in the pan. Create 2 or 3 more patties, taking care not to let the sides touch.
Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove from pan and place on a plate covered with a paper towel. Repeat with remaining batter.
