Place the squid in a colander and rinse well under cold running water. Pat dry using plenty of paper towel.

Combine the flours, salt and pepper. Mix the lemon juice and chilli and pour into a dipping bowl.

Pour the oil into a large pot so that it fills one third of the pot. Heat over medium-high heat until a cube of bread dropped into the oil turns golden brown in a few seconds.

Toss the squid in the seasoned flour and shake it off in a sieve to get rid of any excess flour.

Fry for 30 seconds until pale golden and just cooked. Drain on a plate lined with paper towel and serve immediately with the lemon juice and chilli for dipping.
