Crispy Fried Calamari and Nyonya Fried Chicken With A Twist of Spice

Mom: "What you guys wanna eat for dinner tonight?  I have squid and chicken wings in the freezer."
Daughters: "Squid! Squid! I wanna have crispy fried squid!"
Son: "No! I want fried chicken."

Well, that's the conversation this afternoon in deciding what to have for dinner.  At least, they know what they want to eat tonight.  Which makes it a little easier in planning what to cook.  Usually they would say "anything la"..urgh!..all moms are afraid of that word..."anything la".  So, my dear darling girls, here's crispy fried squid for you and for my dear son, Nyonya Fried Chicken Wings.  I've added tandoori spice and yogurt to it. 
Crispy Fried Calamari

 Cut squids in rings. Dip squid in 1egg mixed with fish sauce.
Coat the rings in plain flour mix with cornflour and dash of black pepper.
Fried till golden and crispy.
