Sotong Masak Hitam Recipe

Sotong Masak Hitam Recipe

(Malaysian Recipes)

Ingredients: Serves 4

600g squids, small-medium

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon cooking oil

2 onions, peeled and sliced into rings

2 red chilies, seeded and sliced

1 teaspoon salt


Ingredients to be coarsely ground:

8 shallots, peeled

3 cloves garlic, peeled

2.5-cm knob turmeric, peeled

2.5-cm knob ginger, peeled


Wash and clean each squid, removing entrails.  Keep whole and leave eyes intact.  Rub cleaned squids with 1 teaspoon salt and leave for 15 minutes.  Heat oil in a kuali or wok and fry ground ingredients until fragrant.  Add squids and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes.  Add all remaining ingredients and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes.  This dish may look unappetizingly black but it is 'sedap', which is Malay for "tasty", when eaten with hot steamed rice.
