Soy dipping sauce:
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
3 Tbs. brown sugar
1 Tbs. freshly chopped ginger

16 oz. canola or vegetable oil
2 egg yolks
1-2/3 cups ice water
1-2/3 cups sifted flour
2 cups 1/4-in. okra slices

4 appetizer servings

Make the dipping sauce by mixing all sauce ingredients together. Set aside.

Heat the canola oil to 350°F in a deep fryer or a tempura fryer. If you have neither, use a heavy pot, 12 in. deep and wide.

Combine the egg yolks and the ice water in a bowl and mix gently. Add the flour and stir briefly; the batter should appear rough and only partially mixed.

Dip the okra in the batter to coat loosely. Deep fry in small batches for 2 to 3 min., until the okra is golden brown. Serve with the dipping sauce.
