1/2 cup tapioca flour
1 lb okra
1/3 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Mix all the flours, baking powder and water together. Stir and mix well. Drop the okra in.
Heat up a cup of oil in a wok or frying pan over medium heat. Test the oil with a drop of batter; the batter should puff up right away. Coat each piece of okra with the batter and drop it in the pan. Fry until lightly brown. Remove and drain oil. Serve immediately.
Serve hot with chili fish sauce (below) and rice.
