Okra Chips with Yogurt Sriracha Dip

“Going against all odds
My fries turned green,
An act so criminal
Never before been seen.
The potatoes were nervous
This may be it,
The revolution alarming
End of the Fries, bit by bit.
As skeptical tasters
Took that dreaded bite,
The expressions turned elated
Ah! what a sight.
And the okra crisp
Broke into a generous smile,
This was victory new
And would last a while”


For the Dip
1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce
2 tablespoon thick greek yogurt
½ teaspoon fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
Salt & pepper
For the Chips
2 pounds Okra, washed and cut into strips
1 heaped tablespoon gram flour (besan)
2 tablespoon olive oil
½ teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon coriander powder
1 teaspoon amchoor (dry mango) powder
Salt & pepper

Mix all the ingredients for the dip and refrigerate for an hour.
Mix all the ingredients for the chips till all the okra is evenly coated with the spices. Bake at 375 F for 35-40 minutes, till the okra is crisp and the edges begin to brown. Cool (it will become more crisp) and serve with the Sriracha dip.
A quick, healthy and delicious alternative to Fries. And the Sriracha dip works more than perfectly!
