  1. I noticed that when you blended the masla for grinding, it went in the blender dry but it is actually wet, did you add water? Also, how much water is being added to this recipe altogether. This looks so yummy I cant wait to try it.

  2. Thanks for the detailed procedure and the supplemented pictures! Helped me so much to precisely prepare. Tasted delicious! Thank you. :)

  3. Thanks Aarthi. Quick Question - Boiling the squid till oil separates won't overcook the squid and make it rubbery ?
