I'd like to share this recipe that I've been enjoying since I was young. It's not that complicated and it only use a few ingredients . Besides squid you can also use chicken or beef . This stir fry squid is best served with steamed white rice.
My Mom's Stir Fry Squid
200g squid (cleaned and cut about your index finger size)
3 shallots - crushed
1 garlic - crushed
1 inch ginger - crushed
some turmeric powder (for colourand flavour)
salt to taste
sugar to taste
3 table spoon cooking oil
1 onion (slice into ring)
-In a pestle & mortar (or in a food prosessor) crushed the shallots, garlic, ginger and turmeric with a pinch of salt.
- mix the squid and the shallots mixture together.
- heat the wok and then put in the squid into the wok on medium heat and add in some water and sugar . Keep strirring until some of the liquid evaporates.
-when you see some of the liquid has evaporated...add in the oil and turn the heat to HIGH. At this stage you need to keep stirring and this only takes a few minutes....add in the onion rings and stirr well for about a minute and turn off the heat.
-The squid is ready to be sreved.
note : you may add some sliced carrots or beans , brocoli or cauliflower into this dish. Just tossed them into the wok after you add in the oil.
