Fried Calamari Balls

Fried Calamari Balls
1lb cleaned calamari(squid), both tubes and tentacles
1 small onion, diced
2 teaspoons ginger, minced
1 egg
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
2 tablespoons cornstarch

Vegetable oil for deep frying

Heat the oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat while preparing batter.
In a food processor, puree all the ingredients except the tentacles and oil until smooth. (see the photo on the right)

Add the tentacles and pulse until chunks of tentacles become incorporated in the batter.

Scoop a heaping tablespoon of batter and carefully drop in the oil. Fry both sides until golden and fully cooked.
