                     If you are the one turned head back on seeing squid before cooking, then same pinch.   It was my first time I had seen kanava/squid before cooking. Got it from my friend who lives in Rameshwaram. The tube structure was just out of my imagination. I am not a child now, waiting for my mother to clean and cook, this was my imagination. I am heading a family now, so I started to clean. Any ingredient, if you fry will never let you down. According to me, adding more pepper to any non-veg item will surely make it fool proof.
