  • 500 g - squid
  • 1 chopped Onion
  • 2 tsp - ginger-garlic paste
  • 1.5 tsp - chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp - pepper powder
  • 1/2 tsp - Turmeric
  • Curry leaves - 3 sprigs
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 cup - coconut, grated
  • 1 Green chilli
  • 2 tbsp - oil
  • How to Make Squid Thoran:

    1. 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.
    2. Put the squid in an earthen pot. Cover and cook on low heat till the squid is nearly cooked.
    3. No need to add water as the squid will release its juices when it starts to cook.
    4. 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.
    5. Heat oil in a pan and add curry leaves and chopped onion. Saute till the onion turns translucent.
    6. Add the ginger-garlic paste and fry for a minute. Add the chilli powder, pepper powder and turmeric powder and saute for a few seconds.
    7. Add the cooked squid along with the grated coconut and stir well. Cook further for a couple of minutes.
    8. Serve hot.
