About Squid/kanava Curry Recipe:

Squid or kanava curry or nadan koonthal curry can become your family's favourite curry dish if cooked in traditional style. This is a fantastic recipe for all seafood lovers. Uncooked squid contains around 13 grams of protein, 0.4 grams of total saturated fat, along 200 milligrams of cholesterol. It also has 0.09 grams of monounsaturated fat and 0.4 grams of polyunsaturated fat. Many people take omega-3 supplements or eat more foods with omega-3 fatty acids — such as salmon — because of the cardiovascular benefits, including their ability to raise HDL levels. Calamari oil has gained much positive media attention for its omega-3 fatty acids in recent years. Unfortunately, squid is available primarily on the seashore side and not in an all-around place. But Kerala is very popular for squids' availability, resulting in a tender rich gravy, perfect for roti, kappa, and rice.
