Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until well-blended. Transfer the breader to a shallow dish for dredging. Barely trim the tops and bottom of the okra, cut into half-inch rounds, toss it in some buttermilk, dredge in the breader, shake in a sifter to remove the excess flour and then fry.
