  • Preparation Time15 mins
  • Cooking Time5 mins
  • Serves2
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon dried fenugreek leaves
1 teaspoon ground fenugreek
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
A pinch of salt, plus more for sprinkling
A pinch of pepper
3 large squid bodies, cleaned
1/4 cup rapeseed oil
Coriander and Mint Chutney, recipe follows

For the Coriander and Mint Chutney

1 tsp rapeseed oil
1 tsp garam masala
4 cloves garlic
1 cup chopped coriander
1 cup chopped mint
1 tbsp lemon juice
Pinch of salt and pepper

Put the flour, coriander, fenugreek leaves, ground fenugreek, paprika, turmeric, salt and pepper into a medium bowl and mix well.

Dry the squid with a paper towel and then cut the bodies crosswise into 1/4-inch rings. Put the rings into the flour mixture and coat them well. Heat the oil in a large skillet and fry the coated squid until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Do not overcook them as they will become tough and rubbery.

Drain on a paper towel-lined tray and sprinkle with some salt.

Blend the ingredients for the chutney together and serve with the calamari.
