Okra is a pretty sticky vegetable. It is actually easy to coat okra, because of the sticky, or even slimy texture. I use buttermilk as one of my ingredients for this southern fried okra, but not to help the breading stick. The buttermilk is used to add a nice flavor ( buttermilk is a quite salty), and it actually helps the okra achieve a beautiful golden brown color while it fries.
I usually use frozen okra (it’s cheaper, I don’t have to worry about it going bad, and it’s already cut up) but you can definitely use fresh okra. Before frying the okra make sure to rinse the okra. I usually wash my okra and other vegetables in cool water with a couple tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
