How to Make Squid curry with turmeric rice

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook the rice according to package instructions. Add the turmeric and the butter right at the beginning of cooking.
  2. Wash and chop the squid. Set aside for 5-10 min to make sure the water drains completely then cut them as you wish into chunks or rings. For some reason in a curry I like squid cut into pieces/chunks rather than rings. Sprinkle some salt, pepper and all the powders (chilli, coriander, turmeric, garam masala, half of the garlic), mix well until all nicely coated and set aside for few minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, place a deeper pan over medium heat, add the coconut oil and the chopped shallots with the chopped green chilli, the curry leaves
  4. Add half of the grated ginger (if you like and choose to use - I love ginger in almost everything so I put a little here too
  5. Immediately after, put in the the tomato paste, the marinated squid, coconut milk and cook for about 10 minutes, covered.
  6. Turn the heat off and it's ready!
  7. Serve the freshly cooked side dish and sprinkle some coriander or freshly chopped chives over with a squeeze of fresh lemon.
