Cut squid tubes in half, then into 5cm pieces. Place eggs in a shallow bowl and whisk. Place flour and breadcrumbs on separate plates. Add spices and sesame seeds to breadcrumbs and mix well.


Carefully coat squid with flour, shake off excess. Dip squid into egg, then coat well in breadcrumbs.


Pour oil into a medium heavy-based saucepan until it is about one-third of the way up the side of the pan. Heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook squid, in batches, for 2 minutes or until golden. Drain on a paper towel and serve.
