Calamares Ampalaya is healthy and delicious dish. If you’re looking for new innovative ways to serve vegetable, you ought to try this for your family. It’s so good I bet it’s going to win the Nutrition Month recipe competition next year.

1/2 tsp Black Pepper powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup cold water
Oil for deep frying
