Seasoned Fried Squid/ Calamari Rings...


250 g of squid (cleaned and cut into rings)
1/4 cup of plain flour
2 tbsp of corn starch
1 tsp of 5 spice powder
1 large egg beaten
1 tsp of salt
Oil to fry

Pre-soak squid in beaten egg for at least 30 minutes with a pinch of salt. 

In a bowl mix plain flour, corn starch, salt and 5 spice powder and keep aside.

When ready to fry, roll the squid in the flour mix and dust off the excess and fry in deep and hot oil. Do not leave it to fry too long as squid will be rubbery if cooked too long. Remove from oil as the flour coating the squid turns golden and drain out on a paper towel.

Fried Squid is best eaten while its hot so fry the squid only when you are ready to eat it right away.

Now our Seasoned Fried Squid is ready to be served. Do try and let me know how it turned out!
