Squid Thoran

Once we reached ISB, our first outing was to Hypercity in Inorbit Mall to check out grocery items. I was looking around checking out stuff, when D came running and said, "Mama, they have squid here." The excitement of seeing Squid, his favourite was written all over his face. Needless to say, after

  • 1 - 1/2 teaspoons Chilli powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pepper powder powder
  • 1/2 teaspoons Turmeric powder
  • 3 sprigs Curry leaves
  • to taste Salt
  • 1/4 cup Coconut grated

  • Clean and cut the squid into rings. Mix the squid with a little bit of turmeric powder, chilli powder, salt and a sprig of curry leaves.
  • Put the squid in an earthen pot.Cover and cook on low heat till the squid is nearly cooked.
  • No need to add water as the squid will release its juices when it starts to cook. Increase the heat to high and let the liquid evaporate.
  • Squid should not be cooked for long or else it will turn rubbery. Switch off heat and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add curry leaves and chopped onion. Saute till the onion turns translucent.
  • Add the ginger- garlic paste and fry for a minute. Add the chilli powder, pepper powder and turmeric powder and sauet for a few seconds.
  • Add the cooked squid along with the grated coconut and stir well. Cook further for a couple of minutes. Serve hot.
