What’s on my plate? – Squids and Kingfish 1


My husband asked “What do you want as Valentine’s Day gift?”  I thought for a while and said I have one and only one wish – I want “Bondaas”(squid). He sighed in exasperation because he thought I am into one of my Drama moods(not his fault – he thought I meant Bonda ( which means Tender Coconut in Tulu).

And so, I ordered from the famous sea food restaurant in Mangalore – Machali .

Bondaas (Squid) ghee roast and of course the mandatory Anjal (King Fish) tawa masala

It was extremely delicious, and my mouth is waters every time I look at this picture. Saurabh too enjoyed it although he said that the real squid is quite ugly to look at. It could be a good example of the words ” Never judge someone by their appearance”.


Have you ever tried Squids?
Do you know what is it called in Hindi?
(We have been trying to find the name)

    That just looks mouthwatering! I remember having awesome squid fry with coconut when we used to visit our grandma’s place in Trivandrum as kids. The taste still lingers in my mouth. Your post just brought back those memories. Once in a while, we head to this Mangalorean restaurant nearby to get that authentic taste back.
