Step 1

Clean and wash squids. Pat them dry with a kitchen towel. Chop two to three squids for stuffing. Soak tamarind in one cup of water for about fifteen minutes and squeeze to extract thick pulp. Keep aside.

Step 2

Grind together Kashmiri red chillies, garlic, ginger, cumin seeds, black peppercorns, cloves and cinnamon in vinegar. Heat three tablespoons oil in a pan. Add onions and sauté till slightly pink. Add ground masala and salt to taste.

Step 3

Sauté for a minute. Add chopped squids and cook till squids are done. When slightly cooled, stuff this mixture into the remaining squids and seal them with a toothpick.

Step 4

Dab them with the remaining oil and keep them in a pan in layers. Add thick tamarind pulp, cover and cook till the squids are done.

Step 5

Remove cover and cook till gravy thickens. Serve hot.
