Thai Style Stuffed Squid

At times, watching certain cookery channels inspires me to try certain dishes. Stuffed Squid was one such dish. I have been thinking of preparing this for a while. Usually while buying squid, I get it cut. But this time, I specifically asked them to not to chop it up. I had already zeroed in on a recipe from Franglais Kitchen, as the ingredients were already in stock. I tweaked the recipe a bit to suit my palate. This was served with Thai Fried Rice. What a wonderful combination !!!

Beef Curry

I had mentioned about our Coorg trip in one of my previous posts. Lilian aunty, our host, had prepared this wonderful Mutton Curry that was served with Paapputtu, a steamed rice dish. Aunty had promptly shared the recipe with me. When my parents and sister were here, I prepared this dish. The only difference is that I used Beef instead of Mutton. The beef version also turned out to be as good as the mutton curry. You can prepare this with chicken as well.
