Squid Fry / Kadambha Varuval

Squid / Kadambha is a very popular seafood dish in Kerala,it is the tastiest amoung all seafood delicacies.It has a vert nice flavour that is so inviting but the cleaning part is very time consuming. First the black ink has to be cleaned out ,then there is a transparent stick like structure that yas to be removed,finally peel the pink colored layer covering the outer body.Then chop and wash the squid in water to remove the slimness completely.
