Heat the oil in a cast iron Dutch oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl add flour, herbs, buttermilk and egg. Mix well together. Add okra to mixture and coat. Using a tablespoon, scoop mixture into the hot oil. Constantly flip fritters to cook and brown evenly, about 12 to 15 minutes. Remove fritters with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
