First of all  i would like to say Thank you to my best friend cindy and bridget for a pair of gorgeous plate and bowl,i really appreciated,I like it so much,you will see what i create on the plate and i will use the bowl later for sure :)

Calamari tempura in tomato spicy sauce
Ingredients :
400 gr clean squid with tentacles about 8 pcs
6 oz tempura batter mix ( half package  a picture  bellow)
3/4 cup cold water
vegetable oil for fry about 2-3 cups

tomato spicy sauce ingredients :
1 tomato
1 shallot
1 clove garlic
handful  cilantro
1 tbs olive oil
( chop all sauce ingredients into blender until combine )
no add salt,because tempura batter mix is already had salt in it
simmer on the sauce pan for about 3 minutes or until hot


preparation:
On deep fry pan heat vegetable oil until temperature reach 350 degree F
cut  squid into  1/3-1/2 inch  thick rings, use tentacles if you like
mix tempura batter with cold water
dip squid into tempura batter mix , drop into Hot oil about 8 ring or so ( I use chopstick to drop into oil ) that way a rings not stuffed with tempura batter and just to avoid splash from hot oil
fry until golden brown about 1-2 minutes
  drain  into paper towel
serve hot with  spicy tomato sauce or any sauce  you like
