More homecooked

It is more homecooked meals for us. Most of the time, nothing extravagant but simple dishes where everyone would enjoy at home.

We also buy lot of canned food for stock up and one of my must-have is sardine!! Tomato sardine. When it comes to comfort food, tomato sardine is one of them for me. How about you?? 

Hubby bought few packs of squid not long ago. Baits for his fishing trip but I took one pack last week and cooked it this way. Curry squid, one of my favourite flavour other than grilled squid. 

My simple curry squid. The cleaning is the most tedious part, which I don't fancy much. 


Squids, cleaned and cut

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 shallot, sliced

1 big onion, sliced

2 tbsp curry powder

Salt and pepper to taste

About 1 cup water

Cooking oil


1. In a wok, heat up about 2 tbsp cooking oil. 

2. Toss in garlic and shallot, saute for few seconds till fragrant. Add in big onion, saute for few seconds till it soften. 

3. Add in curry powder, and squid. Stir till squid is mixed well and almost cooked then add in water and lower the heat, let it simmer. 

4. Add in salt and pepper to taste, mix well and off the heat 


  1. Salute you for cleaning the squid!

  2. Yes, my missus does the cleaning - says it is easier to do the fresh ones than those in frozen packs. Nicer too!!!

  3. wah....squid! my fav! Home cooked dishes are the best!

  4. Oh, I never buy squid for many years now... but I like the grilled squid in Japanese restaurants! hahaha.. I like sardine too, can make pizza or sandwiches with them besides rice...

  5. Squid is something I have never cooked before.

  6. For me, I do not really fancy squid as the squids I had eaten before are always rubbery and hard to chew.
