Nadan Koonthal Roast is one of the all time favorite seafood dishes, quite popular in Kerala Cuisine. Squids are largely available along the coastal areas. You will discover a lot many dishes with Squid and I happened to taste this particular Nadan Koonthal Roast during my trip to a remote Malabar region. I was lucky to have tasted the dish which I felt was quite amazing. It is the lemony flavored masala that makes the Squid Roast a top rated one. A slight tanginess accompanied with the spiciness tickles the taste buds and makes you yearn for more. Anybody vacationing in Kerala should taste a Nadan Koonthal Roast from a toddy shop, that is a real treat. To be frank, I had tasted the dish from a toddy shop. The spiciness was too high and tears were running down my cheeks but the dish was real tasty. In this recipe I had adjusted the spiciness to a moderate level since I have kids at home.
Squid Roast is very easy to prepare with the barest minimum of ingredients. You shouldn’t leave out marination which is the most important part of the preparation. Marination helps the flesh to absorb the varied flavors and that makes the dish exotic. Nadan Koonthal Roast makes an excellent combination with white rice or boiled kappa.
