Squid Fry/Kanava Meen Varuval/Kerala Squid Fry/Kanava Fry/Calamari Fry/Koonthal Varuval



Squid is cooked and eaten in many cuisines all over the world. The common culinary name for squid is Calamari and is often used for squid dishes. The direct source of the English name calamari is disputed, with Spanish calamari, Italian calamaro and Modern Greek Kalamari being cited. Ultimately, all of these terms derive from the Late Latin calamarium, “pen case” or “ink pot”, itself from the Latin calamarius. “pertaining to a writing-reed”, after the resemblance in shape and the inky fluid that the squid secrete[Souce:Wikipedia]. Now that we saw how interesting the squid is known throughout the world, the squid fry is equally interesting like the name itself. Do try out this interesting, authentic and tempting Squid Fry and post your comments here.

Fish Cutlets/Fish Patties/Fish Cakes

We are always looking to make some snacks for the kids especially after school. To satisfy their taste buds and give them something interesting is always a challenge. Today I was running out of many groceries in my kitchen and was really lazy to go shopping. It is really cold and windy, most of the days I just don’t want to step out of the door. I just had some potatoes and tuna fish [cans], so ended up making cutlets. I have previously made fish cutlets from fresh fish. This is my first time using tuna fish from a can, I never buy canned fish. But I have so many friends using canned tuna, so I just wanted to try it once. We all liked it a lot, it was awesome.
