Other than the brinjal sambal, I also cooked squid that day for her. I used to cook this dish before and since the domestic helper was around, I asked her to go the market and buy some squid. The dish is from a very good cookbook I got from Malaysia. I’ve made several of the dishes in there and they worked out real good. I’ll post a picture of the two books at a later date, or in my pages section.

Recipe

1/2 – 1 kg of squid, cut into rings and seasoned with lime juice and fresh or powdered turmeric

1 onion sliced thick

1-2 thinly sliced garlic

garlic

Indonesian sweet soya sauce

Yes, it’s that simple but tastes wonderful.

Marinade the squid in turmeric and lime juice. Then deep fry till done.

 

Add onions and cook till soft

 

Add a lot of soya sauce to cover the pan. Add 2-3 tbsp of ketchup and some lime juice.

 

Add fried squid and mix to coat. Do not overcook or squid will be tough.
