It has been a while since we last had calamari /squids. Daddy loves it deep fried and crispy instead of cooking them in curry . I took out 3 medium size calamari and cut them into rings. I have some panko bread crumbs in the pantry so I decided to have them deep fried with this panko crumbs. I mixed the crumbs with some curry powder so as to give the panko crumbs some spicy flavor. It turned out crispy on the outside and juicy moist on the inside. The taste was awesome...spicy hot ...good match for the calamari. We can't eat much of this artery clogging morsels. Dip it with WASABI.....goodness I can't stop eating them !
I have to learn more on how to deep fry this pieces of calamari
unsightly but delicious...who cares as long as it taste good :))
I love wasabi...I really can't do without it :p
