Squid and Okra Stir Fry

Squid and Okra Stir Fry
The first time I saw this dish in Malaysia I thought it was not a good at all but one day I run out of choices and exhausted every Malaysian dish that I liked so I tried this one, surprisingly it was so good. I know the restaurant owner so I asked him what’s the ingredients which also surprised me as it only contains 5 key ingredients which are squid, okra, curry powder, onion and garlic. Since then this is a part of the family menu which we prepare for once in a while.

I’m not sure though if this is a pure Malaysian dish as I had seen a hard-core version of this dish which is called Squid and Okra in Sambal, which is a very spicy and hot dish. I guess this dish is prepared for foreigners in Malaysia who are not used to their spicy counterpart.

Ingredients

3 pcs squid, sliced into rings
300g okra
2 tbsp curry powder
1 small red onion, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
oil
salt
water

Method

  1. In a pan, heat oil and sauté garlic and onions.
  2. Add curry powder and okra, stir fry for 3-5 minutes until okra is half cooked.
  3. Add the squid and stir-fry for additional 2 minutes in a very high heat.
  4. Add a small amount of water to give moisture, simmer for 1 minute.
  5. Season with salt.

    What a great way to use okra. And while I don’t think I could handle it served in sambal, a touch might be very good.

    I believe there are different versions of this dish in Malaysia and a more popular one might be cooked with tamarind like an assam curry.
