A simple Squid / koonthal Recipe for you this time, which I got from a news paper clipping. Though my favourite with squid is always the koonthal roast, I loved to take this with pathiri or chapathi.
kanava / koonthal 1/2 kg
ginger 1/2 " piece
garlic cloves small 4
green chillies 3
pepper corns 1 tsp
fennel seeds 1 pinch
garam masala powder a pinch
coriander leaves chopped 2 Tbsps
coriander powder 11/2 tsp
chilli powder 1 tsp
turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
coconut milk 1/2 cup thick
vinegar 1 Tbsp
How to prepare
Cut and clean squid.
Grind garlic, ginger , green chillies,pepper corns and fennel seeds together to form a paste.
Heat oil , saute chopped onions until golden brown.
Add ground paste, saute for a while. Add chopped tomato, squid pieces, ground paste, coriander and chilli powders , salt and vinegar. Saute for 1 minute and cook it with enough water. When the fish is cooked well and the water is reduced, add coriander leaves and coconut milk.
Stir until you get a thick preparation.Then sprinkle little garam masala over it.
