Hi you guys! In the following link, the round yellow food is squid. Do you guys call it "squid circles"?

Steve, are you sure those aren't onion rings? That's what they look like and it would fit in better with the other "fast food" selections they are showing. Anyway, if it is deep-fried squid, we would call it fried squid rings or the traditional name...calamari. Now I have a craving.....

I would use "calamari", but I know them from Italy, not from the UK.

I agree: they are onion rings. They are too regular to be squid.

All you need is : an onion, flour, water and cooking oil.

With the right context almost anything can sound appropriate.

But I can't eat flour - no grains at all. Haven't tried to make them with coconut or almond flour - that might just work!
