Step 1

Slice octopus diagonally.

Wash perilla leaves, cut lengthwise into halves.

Cut cheese into 1/4-inch-thick slices, then each slice into three pieces.

Place cheese on leaves, roll up and sandwich with two octopus pieces.

Mix all ingredients for golden batter lightly. Dip cheese-leaves-octopus pieces into batter and deep-fry until golden.

Boil buckwheat noodles for a few minutes. Noodles should not be soft, but still hard in the center. Cut into 1-inch lengths. Cut dried laver into 1/4-inch-wide strips. Place noodles on dried laver, roll up and deep-fry.

Arrange fried octopus on serving plate and sprinkle with garnishes.
