We are excited in introducing our first soup recipe. For a difference, we are sharing you with the exclusive squid soup recipe shared by our subscriber Shirly James. I am sure you all will love this sea food soup. Though it’s a very easy to make soup, it smells and tastes great. This is also great for a cold day or when you’re recovering from some illness.

Directions for squid soup preparation.

  1. Clean the squid well and cut it  into 3 inch x ½ inch strips.
  2. Slice the radish / turnips, carrots thinly into bitesized pieces.
  3. Cut the green onions into 2 inch long pieces.
  4. In a soup pot place all ingredients and mix well with a spoon.
  5. Add 5 cups of water and bring it to a boil over high heat for around 15 minutes.
  6. Turn down the heat over medium and cook for another 25 minutes until the radish (will become translucent) / turnip is cooked.
  7. Sprinkle the coriander leaves (മല്ലിയില).
  8. Serve hot with more side dishes.
