 This recipe is adapted from one in the late Bill Neal’s “Southern 
 Cooking” (University of North Carolina Press, 1985), where he 
 wrote that he would like to persuade theater owners to sell fried 
 okra instead of popcorn! His beignets are terrific as appetizers or 
 a centerpiece to a vegetarian meal.
 
 poon the okra mixture into the skillet by the tablespoonful. Fry for 
 about 2 minutes, or until nicely browned. Turn and cook the other 
 side. Remove to absorbent paper and keep the beignets warm 
 until all are cooked.
