Instructions
  1. Wash and clean the Squid (Koonthal / Kanava) well. Cut it into small pieces and keep aside.
  2. Chop onion, ginger, garlic and green chillies.
  3. Heat 3 table spoon of cooking oil in a pan and put mustard seeds. When they begin to sputter, reduce the flame to medium. Add thinly sliced coconut pieces and fry them for 2 minutes (optional).
  4. Add chopped garlic, ginger and green chillies. Stir for a few seconds and then add chopped onion. Sauté the mixture by adding a little salt.
  5. When the ingredients turn golden brown, reduce the flame to low. Add coriander powder (1 table spoon), chilli powder (¾ table spoon), turmeric powder (1 pinch) and garam masala (1 tea spoon). Stir for a minute.
  6. Now, add ¾ cup of water, lemon juice and salt to taste. Turn the heat to high and mix well. Now, add the Squid (Koonthal / Kanava) pieces. When it starts boiling, turn the heat to low and cook it covered till done (about 15 to 20 minutes). Don’t forget to give a stir in between.
  7. When it is done, open the lid and heat until the dish is almost dry (if there is excess water). Stir occasionally. Add ½ tea spoon of black pepper powder and mix well. Taste the dish for salt.
  8. Koonthal roast (Squid roast) is ready for serving. Transfer the Kanava roast to the serving dish. Garnish it with coriander leaves and onion slices (if required).
