You can use different vegies.Cauliflower would be great! When I served this they didn't realize they were eating okra. The sauce is a must! Remoulade Sauce!

- 1½ cups unbleached all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon paprika

- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 egg, lightly mixed
- 2 cups corn oil, more if needed

- Combine the flour, cumin, chile powder, garlic powder, paprika, pepper and salt in a shallow bowl.

- When it is very hot, dredge the okra in the flour mixture, shake off any excess then dip into egg then flour again and fry in the oil in batches until light-brown and crispy.
