Ingredients

  • 1 kg (2 lb 4 oz) squid
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1, finely chopped onion
  • 10, plus extra for garnish curry leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon fenugreek seeds
  • 4 cloves, crushed garlic
  • 7 cm (2 3/4 in) piece, grated ginger
  • 100 ml (3 1/2 fl oz) coconut cream
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice

Method

1. Pull the squid heads and tentacles out of their bodies, along with any innards, and discard. Peel off the skins. Rinse the bodies well, pulling out the clear quills, then cut the bodies into 2.5 cm (1 in) rings.

2. Dry-fry the cumin and coriander seeds in a frying pan over medium- high heat for 2- 3 minutes, or until fragrant. Allow to cool. Using a mortar with a pestle, or a spice grinder, crush or grind to a powder. Mix the ground cumin and coriander with the chilli powder and ground turmeric. Add the squid and mix well.

3. In a heavy-based frying pan, heat the oil and fry the onion until lightly browned. Add the curry leaves, fenugreek, garlic, ginger and coconut cream. Bring slowly to the boil. Add the squid, then stir well. Simmer for 2- 3 minutes, or until cooked and tender. Stir in the lime juice, season and serve garnished with curry leaves.
