How to Make Squid Thoran

  • 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 saute 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.
