This Koonthal Roast recipe belongs  to  my lovable mom  .The speciality of my moms dish is that it will be more spicier than others it will be more tastier than everyone else cooking.

                                                    Then main ingredient of the dish is squid (koonthal). Squid is a good  food  source  for  zinc  and Manganese and high in Copper ,selenium,  vitamin B12  and riboflavin. So its   healthy dish .The  whole  body of  squid is stuffy. The beak  and gladius  are  the only  parts we  are not eating. So its a highly vitamin contained food .it belongs to the octopus family.
                                       The process of making this dish is very  simple . In simple words making of the masala mix is the first step.  Then putting the stamed squid into the masala mix and cook  well in  low flame .
