KERALA CUISINE / MALABAR SQUID FRY - KOONTHAL VARUTHATH

KERALA CUISINE / MALABAR SQUID FRY - KOONTHAL VARUTHATH

Though squid or calamari is not available like any other fishes, this fish has a great place in seafood party dinner ideas. As I am from Kerala, I love to cook seafood recipes often for lunch. Fish fry or fish curry for the lunch is very common in most of the households in Kerala. Indian fish recipes are always unique in taste and flavor but will be spicy. For this fried calamari recipe, I marinated the squid rings with all the ingredients which crushed gently with hands and then added to the hot oil, fried in a medium heat until done. You can add or less the chili powder according to your spice level. So do try this recipe for squid fry and drop your comments.
