3 people


20 minutes



– Cleaned squid – Salt – Ground white pepper – All purpose flour – Corn starch – Egg white – Scallion and red chilies

Step 1

Rinse the squid with water, pat dry with paper towels

Step 2

 Mix all the ingredients for the Frying Batter until well combined. Add the squid to the Frying Batter, stir to coat well.

Step 3

To deep-fry the squid, heat 2 to 3 inches (5 - 7.5 cm) of the oil in a wok or a frying pan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Gently drop the squid into the oil and loosen them up immediately with a spatula to prevent the squid from clumping together.

Step 4

Deep-fry the squid until golden brown or crispy. DO NOT OVER FRY. Dish out with a strainer or a slotted spoon, draining the excess oil by laying the squid on a dish lined with paper towels.

Step 5

To stir-fry, heat the 1/2 tablespoon of oil in a skillet over high heat. Add the scallion, red chilies and stir quickly. Return the fried squid to the skillet and add the salt and white pepper. Stir to combine well. Dish out and serve hot.
