Onion : 1 chopped
Tomato : 1 chopped
coriander powder : 1 tsp
chilli powder : 1 tsp
curry masala pwd : 1/4 tsp (optional) can use garam masala
Turmeric : a pinch
dry curry leaf powder : 1/2 tsp ( kariveppilai)
water 1 cup
coriander garnishing


In a kadai heat 2 tsp oil, add dry curry leaf powder once you get a nice aroma add onions and fry it until soft then add tomato and fry till gravy consistency. Now add coriander powder, chilli powder,masala powder, salt. keep the heat low, add turmeric and water. when the water is little warm add the squids and close the kadai. once the squids are added the cooking time is just 10 to 15 mins or else they become rubbery.
this is a semi gravy , and goes well with some plain pulavs. Enjoi

Dry curry leaf powder:
Buy curry leaves and wipe them off no moisture , dry them in shade, just spread them over a tissue and keep it for a day or 2 then dry grind them to make a coarse powder. Any dish tastes good when this is added. Very good source of iron and really good for hair growth if not atleast reduces hair fall.... ;-)
