Squid Masala | Sotong Masala Curry | Squid Recipes

Squid Masala Curry, Sotong Curry or Kanava Masala, Koonthal Curry is easy masala curry made with squid or sotong in onion-tomato gravy. This squid curry is Andhra style so it's on spicy side. I didn't ate myself this squid masala but really got good review for it and that too when I cooked it first time and until now the only time.

I made for DH's close friend and he got theses sotong too along as we don't eat sotong/squid. DH friend also gave me the recipe which he got it from his sister whom suppose to be expert in this curry, DH friend was suppose to make this squid himself but he came over to our place that day and bring it along and offered to cook it himself but I thought of trying my hands though I was skeptical. He gave his sister recipe ( they call it squid fry) which I followed the result was really good he said, DH didn't ate too so I couldn't get his review.


For 1st time the curry came really well it looked fab and taste yum just like his sister prepares seriously I was happy hearing that. So if you eat squid or sotong and try this version and you will love it too, reduce chili powder to 1 tsp if you don't eat spicy food. I quickly cliked few pictures in late evening as I know I am not going to cook squid again but too share with you all this lovely recipe.
