In every year, when October comes, it is said that Halloween is coming very close, and indispensable things in Halloween are dishes. They can be prepared by using traditional Halloween colors such as black and orange, and may be decorated with various themes. What dish for this year's Halloween occasion have you prepared? If you have no any idea what dish you would make in this year's Halloween, the dish below could be a good idea for you.

Today, I am going to show you how to realize a dish that is very popular in Halloween called "Ghost Octopus" from sausage. Let's start!


- 10 mini sausages

- 100g wheat flour

- 8g baking powder (check expiration date first)

- 70 ml water

- 50g ketchup

- 10g sugar

- 1/4 teaspoon salt

- Cooking oil

A little bit of cheese or (mayonnaise) and seaweed (*Note: the ingredients are to make eyes and mouth for the octopus. For the seaweed, if you do not have this ingredient, you can also use other suitable ingredients instead.)

(*Note: the amount of the ingredients above is only standard numbers so you can adjust them to be suitable for your meal).


Step 1:

- Slit some lines on each sausage to make tentacles for octopus as the image below. (*Note: if you want to make small octopus, you can cut the sausages in half.)

Step 2:

- Make a mixture with the ingredients follow as: 100g wheat flour, 8g baking powder, 10g sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 50g ketchup and 70 ml water, then mix well.

- Next dip a half of the sausage which are not slit into the mixture as the image below.

Step 3:

- Pour a large amount of cooking oil into a deed-frying pan or a pot to fry the sausages. Fry them until they have a slight brown.

Step 4:

- Put the octopuses on a plate and use the cheese or (mayonnaise) and seaweed to make the mouth and the eyes for them.

So, it is done, now you only need to wait until Halloween so that you can realize this dish to entertain your family and friends. It is very great, isn't it?
