About Squid Fry
Squid is eaten in many English cuisines, and the culinary term calamari is frequently used for squid dishes. Squid can be prepared and cooked in a variety of ways. Fried squid is a popular dish in the Mediterranean. It is served with tartar sauce in Lebanon and Syria. It is sold in fish and chip shops in New Zealand, Australia, the United States and Canada, and South Africa. In the United Kingdom, it is available in various establishments as Mediterranean calamari or Asian salt and pepper fried squid, and is frequently served as a bar snack, street food, or starter.
Squid is eaten in coastal areas of India and Sri Lanka, such as Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Squid is deep fried (Koonthal Fry) or roasted (koonthal varattiyathu/Roast). It is known as koonthal, kanava, or kadamba in Kerala and Tamil Nadu.
Ingredients for Squid Fry
Baby Squid :
The meat is firm and white, with a mild, sweet, almost nutty flavour. Small fried squid is frequently firm and chewy, but it should not be rubbery. Soak the squid in lemon or kiwi fruit juice for 30 minutes before cooking to tenderise the meat and remove some of the chewiness.
Garam Masala Powder :
Garam masala is a spice blend that is widely used in Indian cuisine, including curries, lentil dishes, and soups. Cinnamon, mace, peppercorns, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, and cardamon pods are toasted in a pan to release their aromatic flavours before being ground to a powder.
Turmeric Powder :
The turmeric root is quite bitter, but has an almost citrusy taste, compared to the powder. Turmeric also has something of a sweet taste, and it is quite earthy. When you use the powder, you're unlikely to notice the texture unless you use a substantial amount, but it is somewhat gritty.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
