  1. Drain the vegan calamari from its marinate water.
  2. Mix all the flour and spice powders for coating.
  3. Put calamari slices into flour and coat well, adding 2-3 tbsp water to get a good coating.
  4. Leave aside for 10 minutes for the calamari to absorb the spiced flour.
  5. Heat oil to medium high and fry the calamari slices for 4-5 minutes, flipping over a few times to get an even cooking.
  6. Once the calamari slices are light brown, remove from oil and drain on paper towels.
  7. Serve while still hot with some chilli sauce as a dip.
