Squid Curry | Kanava Curry & A Gift Voucher !!

Hope everyone had a great Christmas. Thanx everyone for the wishes through mails,comments & fb messages.We had a very good celebration too !! I have another good news to share with you all,got a really surprise gift voucher for participating in "Street food of India"event hosted by Rosh @ Chef Al Dente.This is my first ever gift voucher/gift from the blogging world,am so happy to receive it yesterday as Santa's gift to me.My recipe of Beef roast got selected and a big bunch of thanks,Rosh for the wonderful gift voucher.


Back to blogging after the zeal & blast of Christmas with a delicious squid /kanava curry.Squid /Kanava was first introduced to me five years back in Trivandrum.That's the first time,I first noticed this fish.By the looks & feel,its very slippery & slimy but once cooked becomes like meat or thick rubberband like.And it was our neighbour aunty who explained me the recipe to prepare squid curry and I followed it thereafter.We all loved the curry and so bought it often.This fish is rarely seen at my home town and husband's place too.So,do try this curry if you get squid at your place & Enjoy !!



Ingredients
squid 500gms
onion 1 sliced
coconut sliced 2 tbsp
tomato 2 chopped
ginger- garlic paste 2tsp
chilly powder 1 tsp
turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
coriander powder 1 1/2 tsp
garam masala 1/2 tsp
cilantro few sprigs
curry leaves 1 sprig
salt
oil 2 tbsp


Method
-Clean the squid by clearing the inner cavity and peeling the slippery skin.Cut into round pieces and if its very large ,cut in smaller pieces.Wash,drain water and keep aside.
-Heat oil in a pan and fry the coconut slices till slightly browned.
-Slide in the onions and saute the sliced onion till slightly caramelized.Add in curry leaves.Add the ginger- garlic paste and saute till raw smell disappears.Add in the spice powders and saute on low flame.
-Add in the tomatoes,cook well till mashed.Add salt.
-Add the squid pieces and cook covered till 15 minutes until the squid pieces turns firm and cooked.
-Adjust salt & the gravy consistency as per your wish.Add the cilantro and put off flame.
-Serve with kappa vevichathu  or rice or even chapathis !!!

hi julie, congrats for the deserving voucher- i love squid curry, i dont add veggies.. i was quite curious to see if you add veggies to this.. i guess addding veggies to squid curry will spoil the taste.. i guess you are still celebrating and having a great food fiesta =-take care
