Ingredients

  • 1 large dried squid (about 4 ounces)
  • ⅓ cup potato starch
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • pinch baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • ⅓ cup reserved squid soaked water
  • 4 to 5 cups vegetable oil

For soy vinegar dipping sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon hot pepper flakes (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon sesame seeds

Instructions

Prepare squid:

  1. Separate the arms and body of squid. Remove the bone that looks like plastic inside the squid.
  2. Use scissors to cut the body of the squid crosswise into ½-inch-wide pieces. Separate the arms into pieces with the scissors. Soak in 2 to 3 cups cold water for 4 to 5 hours until soft and flexible.
  3. Drain and pat dry with paper towels. Reserve the water from soaking.
  4. Mix the squid with 2 tablespoons flour with your hands to coat evenly. Set aside.

Fry:

  1. Combine potato starch, the remaining ¼ cup flour, salt, baking powder, egg, and the reserved squid soaking water in a mixing bowl. Mix well with a fork.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a 10 to 12 inch pan over medium-high heat until it reaches 350 F. Drop a small spoonful of batter into the heated oil. If the batter floats to the surface in a second, the oil is hot enough for cooking.
  3. Dip each piece of squid into the batter to coat well. Carefully place the coated squid pieces, a few at a time, into the hot oil. Cook, turning a few times, until the batter is light golden and crunchy, about 1 to 2 minutes total. Transfer the cooked squid to a strainer. Repeat with the remaining squid pieces.
  4. When the squid pieces have all been fried once, fry them again, 3 to 4 minutes until very crunchy and golden brown. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

Serve:

  1. Make a soy vinegar dipping sauce by combining soy sauce, vinegar, hot pepper flakes (if used), and sesame seeds in a small bowl and mixing it well.
  2. Serve immediately, with the sauce.
