Okra Chips with Yogurt Sriracha Dip

Don’t get me wrong. French Fries are great- I absolutely adore them. But I am also always on a quest to find other crunchy treats that feed that relentless craving for tasty finger-picked-snacks – and well, are not quite that deep fried. This, I must admit, turned out absolutely delicious! The okra has a distinct flavor that I am very fond of- that combined with subtle Indian spices, and a cold spicy & sour Sriracha dip worked ever so well together. It was my first time using Sriracha in a recipe- and I did my happy dance.

This goes on my something-different-for-my-party list for sure.
