Decoration & Note

- Present squid on a plate, sprinkle on some pepper, onion, chili, and enjoy with hot rice.

- You should cut the squid into large pieces because when frying, it will shrink.

- It is advisable to cook the sauce first so that when you fry the squid, you can quickly add the sauce to avoid prolong the waiting time.

- Stir-fry the squid with high heat to keep the squid crispy. Avoid cooking for long, which may result in tough and dry squid.

- The vegetable portion can be customized according to taste. You can replace it with red and green bell peppers.
