Lusog Notes

This Sweet And Sour Calamares dish is high in iron needed for the formation of red blood cells that distribute oxygen to the rest of the body. It is also high in vitamin A which is important for normal vision and healthy skin.

Chef's Tip

When deep-frying, fill the pan only halfway to avoid the oil from spilling over when you put in the calamares.
