♥...Squids in Red Coconut Curry... ♥

Merry Christmas Folks! So how is the celebration getting on??? Sure you all had loads of fun and the joy will continue till New Year. Enjoy!!! :)

Here's a simple yet easy to make and delicious squid curry. I'm not a big fan of squid except for the cripsy fried rings...

Rishie loves squids made curry, so this is for him.


  • 800gm squids ~ cleaned and cut into rings
  • 5 cloves garlic *
  • 2 inches ginger *
  • 1/4 tsp mixed spices (cumin, mustard seeds, fenugreek)
  • 1 pc onion ~ sliced
  • 2 green chillies ~ sliced
  • 1 large potato ~ cut into big cubes
  • 1 sprig curry leaves
  • 3 tbsp chilli powder (or.. 2 tbsp curry powder & 1 tbsp chilli powder)
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp tamarind juice
  • 1 large tomato ~ sliced
  • water
  • salt to taste

Method :~
  1. Pound together garlic and ginger. 
  2. Mix chilli and turmeric powder with a little water to form a paste.
  3. Heat oil in wok and saute mixed spices, onions, green chillies and curry leaves until fragrant. 
  4. Mix in pounded garlic and ginger paste.
  5. Add squids, potatoes and tamarind juice. Mix and cover the wok for 3-5 minutes.
  6. Add the mixed powder paste. Stir well with the ingredients and cook for 5 minutes. 
  7. Add coconut milk, water and salt. Let the curry boil for few minutes, lastly add tomato.
