Ingredients for Village Style Squid Curry Recipe :
Tamarind Pulp :
Tamarind pulp is a thick tamarind extract. To make tamarind pulp at home, soak the tamarind pods in warm water for about 15-20 minutes, or until soft.
Shallots are a little sweeter than regular onions and have a more subtle flavor. They are good used in raw applications where you want an onion flavor without too much punch, such as in salads and vinaigrettes, , or in slow roasted or braised dishes, where their sweetness can enhance a dish without watering it down.
Green Chilli :
The green chillies in cooked or raw form give a fiery hot flavor. To reduce the fiery hot flavor the seeds and inner membranes could be removed which is effective at reducing the heat of the pod.
I hope you will love it as much my hubby did..Try it and tell me how it turned out.
