Keep aside. You can purchase the cleaned squid or clean it by yourself to make it economical. To clean the squid, begin with pulling the tentacles off the body, to separate head from the body tube. Now wash the tube under running tap water and remove clear backbone. Remove the skin and tentacles from the head and discard the head (the eye area). Lastly, cut the tube into triangles. In a bowl, add flour, 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and a little water and mix till a paste is formed. Add squid pieces and tentacles and coat generously. Sprinkle with enough corn flour and toss till squid pieces become dry. In a wok, heat enough vegetable oil and fry squid pieces in batches till golden-brown and crisp. With a slotted spoon, transfer squid pieces onto a paper towels lined plate to drain. Drain most of the oil from the wok. In the same wok, add scallion, red chili and garlic and stir-fry for about 30 seconds. Add cooked squid and 2-3 teaspoons of spice mixture and mix. Add rice wine vinegar and toss to coat well. Serve immediately.
