Crispy Calamari (Squid Rings)

Calamari (Squid rings)

Crispy calamari is one of my favorite side dish or finger food. This is so crunchy!


3 squid
Oil for frying
Corn starch
Bread crumbs

For batter:
½ cup flour
2 teaspoons corn starch
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ cup water
Salt and pepper

Clean the squid inside and out leaving the squid white in flesh. Cut into rings and set aside.

In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, add water, flour, corn starch, salt and pepper. Beat vigorously with a wire whisk until smooth and runny. Add the sliced squid into the mixture and mix.

In a plate, place cornstarch and bread crumbs in equal proportion and mix.

Take calamari one by one from the flour mixture and coat with bread crumb mixture. Deep fry until golden brown.
