Farida Karodia (born 1942) is a South African novelist and short-story writer.

By 1961 she was teaching in Johannesburg, South Africa and also Zambia. In 1968 the government of South Africa withdrew her passport so she emigrated to Canada. She remained there, where she published her first novel and did radio drama, until returning to South Africa in 1994.

Her first novel was Daughters of the Twilight was published in 1986. Although she was living in Canada at the time, the book concerns what difficulties non-whites faced in getting an education under apartheid. However by 1990 she had also written about Canada. Further during time spent in India in 1991 she wrote and filmed Midnight Embers. In 2002, her novel Other Secrets was among those nominated for an IMPAC Dublin Award.

Still, she is perhaps primarily a writer of the short form, and the collection Against an African Sky and Other Stories was one of her first works after she returned to South Africa.

Her short story entitled "Crossmatch" was published in a collection of short stories by South Asian writers called "Story-Wallah: Short Fiction from South Asian Writers"
