Koonthal / kanava varuthathu (Squid fry)
The dishes prepared with koondal are always my favourite. Koodal or squid is a rare fish that we get in our area. We use to prepare a variety of dishes with squid, and now I would like to share one such recipe with you. The combination of coconut slices and ginger garlic paste gives this squid fry a different and spicy taste. This is one of the specialities of local toddy shops in Kerala and is locally known as 'shap curry'. Try it and I am damn sure that you will lick your fingers when you taste it.
