  3. I visited my friend yesterday to his house and he served me this dish. It's very tasty and incredible. That's why I decided to look out on the internet to see its ingredients. And I'm sure this blog will help me a lot to cook the squid stir fry.

  4. I tried out your recipe and it came really well. The second time when I made this thoran, I added the kanava first and then coconut. Coconut didnt stick to the meenchatti that way .
    Thanks a lot for sharing !!!
