Beer Batter Calamari (Deep Fried Squid Ring/ Cumi Goreng Crispy) with Mint-Chilli Mayonaise

beer batter squid calamari deep fried crispy calamari recipe

Beer batter ot beer batterred is common dish preparation to fish, squid and any seafoods. From a street vendor’s fish and chips to  a fancy batterred sliced abalone.  Beer is a popular ingredient in batters used to coat foods before frying. One reason is that a basic batter can be made from merely flour, beer, and some salt. The purpose of using beer is so the CO2 bubbles in the beer will add body and lightness to the batter. Depending on the type and quality of the beer, beer may also add colour or some flavour to the batter. The practice of beer battering is popular in western cuisine. Intead using only beer, i used to  add some rice wine to the batter to to give a little sweet hint. Besides, you can use a soda water too to replace the alcoholic beverages, but the texture of the batter would be firmer and not as light as using the beer.

Just make sure you use a very cold or nearly frozen beer to get a potent gasses. Mix all dry ingredient and heat up the oil for deep frying before pouring the beer. I love to add a pinch of curry powder to the dish for flavour and aromas. To serve the calamari, i made a mint and chilli mayonaise to make a spicy, creamy and yet a refreshing burst.

  1. I don’t often have deep fried foods because they are not as healthy as other cooking methods but deep fried calamari is one of my favourites. Even restaurants can’t seem to get the batter as fluffy as your batter. Nicely done.

  2. What a great dish! Deep fried calamari is a favorite. Once I learned how easy it is to make at home, I never ordered them again at a restaurant.

  3. My husband approves of this dish! He is a real octopus fan & I am not! 😦 I must make these beauties for him soon! 🙂 He already says thanks! 🙂 x

  4. Oh, I know I would just love this dish. I wish calamari were more popular here. It is hard to get where I live, I have to order it online. I could go for that whole platter right now! The dipping sauce sounds amazing too 🙂

  5. Great recipe…I like how the calamari look, covered with a light and crispy batter…and perfect with the mayo and mint sauce…yum!
    Have a great week 😀

  6. This is really my kind of recipe – I adore beer-battered fried fresh calamari – I would really love to have a taste of these right now and your accompanying mayo sounds equally delicious. Truly a must try recipe! And a fabulous presentation too!

  7. Looks delicious! Beer battered is the best crispy batter. I always choose this for appetizer when it’s available. I’m also interested in your unique mint chilli garlic onion mayo!!! Wow. It has everything. 😀

  8. Your food always looks so professional, but this one looks especially amazing- it looks so much better than the ones I get from restaurants!! I love the idea of a beer batter- I’ve always wanted to try the batter made with soda water but I think beer would work even better since it gives flavour as well!
