Spice To Your Taste Seafood Mariner

400 Grams Fresh Seafood Mariner (should be available in Deli section in Supermarket) otherwise can use Prawns, Mussels etc.

Ingredients:

1 ½ Big Onions

1 two inch piece ginger

1 Pod Garlic (10 flakes) – (optional)

3 Green Chillies (according to spice requirements)

1 Big Tomato

A big bunch of fresh coriander leaves

2 sprigs Curry Leaves (optional)

All the above ingredients to be chopped fine

½ Tsp Black Pepper Powder

½ Tsp Red Chilli Powder (according to spice requirements, may be skipped)

¾ Tsp Turmeric Powder

Salt (1tsp)

3 Tablespoons Oil

Method:

Heat the 3 tablespoons oil in a deep pan or Wok. When hot add chopped garlic and fry slightly. Add the chopped ginger and chopped green chillies and continue frying for a minute. Add the chopped onions and 1 tsp of salt. The salt will bring out the moisture in the onions and quicken the frying process. When the onion in the mixture has lost its rawness, add chopped curry leaves and fry well till slightly brown.

Now add the powders, mix well and add chopped tomatoes. Mix and allow cooking for 3 minutes, adding the chopped coriander leaves, mixing and cooking for another 3 minutes. Add water if required (if the mixture dries up).

Add the Seafood Mariner and mix well. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes (according to your flame-Gas cooks faster). Do not overcook (the squid and mussels will become rubbery). Check for salt (though not required) and if you want it to be more sour, add vinegar to taste (one tomato makes it sufficiently sour). If you want slight gravy add little water.

Turn the flame off and allow cooking further in its own heat.
