This is something I don't do anymore. Alot of work, messy and smelly hands. Benny told me to forget about this recipe after i made it once many many years ago. Its not that its not nice to eat, but he can hear me grumbling all the time.

Recipe yields 20 balls

Ingredients:
600 fresh squids(remove eyes, ink sac, outer skin, tentacles)
10g salt
1 tbsp ground white pepper
15ml fresh lemon juice
45g rice flour
10 slices of 2-day old white bread(diced)

Method:
1. Pat dry sotong with a kitchen paper towel.Make sure its very dry.
2. Blend sotong.
3. Add pepper, salt and rice flour to mix.
4. Form and shape into a ball and coat it with diced bread.
5. Deep fry till golden brown.

Notes:
Its messy because it sticks to your fingers. And when Natasha was born, I couldn't do this without anymore. As i had to juggle my time of caring for her.

You can use this recipe to make the Yu Tiao stuffed with sotong. Just minus the diced bread.

Gina, do u just grind the sotong bodies only? And don't grind the tentacles??

I think if you oil your hands before you make the sotong paste into balls, it helps to prevent the paste from stickiing to your hands. I do this for the fish balls..

You are welcome!

One more question about yr recipe, how do u mean :

Form and shape into a ball and coat it with diced bread.

Is the diced white bread cut into small pieces of bread or they are crumbly like powdery breadcrumb?

yes..the bread will absorb any excess liquid from the squids.
