Squid/ Kanava Roast and Awards
Squid or Kanava is a popular sea food. There are different ways of making squid. My mother makes it as a thoran which is very yummy . This squid roast is a spicy preparation which is very delicious.I got this recipe from Beena Shylesh blog. Thanks Beena for this lovely recipe. I followed exactly the same but used shallots instead of onion and added a little of pepper powder as the green chilly I used here was not hot.
Cleaned Squid-1 lb
Tomato-2 medium size
Ginger- 1 inch thick
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Chilly powder-1 tsp
pepper powder-1/2 tsp
Garam Masala- 1/2 tsp
Fennel powder- 1/2 tsp
Heat oil in a pan and add chopped ginger and garlic followed by chopped onion and curry leaves. Saute till golden brown. Add chopped tomatos and saute till it get mashed up and soft. Add turmeric powder, chilly powder, pepper powder and garam masala.Add cleaned squid and little water( 1/3 cup)cover and cook for four to five minutes and till water evoporates.Add chilly and fry till all the masala gets coated with the squid.
