Kerala Squid Coconut Stir Fry

Preparation of Kerala Squid Coconut Stir Fry

The thought that squids would go well with coconut never occurred to me. As a Goan I only came across stuffed squids or squids in an ambot tik. The batter fried squids and butter garlic squids are also quite popular in Goa. I chanced upon this way of cooking squids on one of my trips to Kerala. Try it out, the Kerala Squid Coconut Stir Fry is lip-smacking.
