Cooking InstructionsClean the kanava (squid) and cut into rings.
Add the tamarind to a cup water and mix well. (You may add more hot water later if you want to change the consistency of the gravy)

Meanwhile, roast the coriander powder and chilly powder lightly without burning.

Add the ground paste to the boiling pot when the kanava has cooked for about 5 minutes.
Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 5 more minutes.
In another pan, heat oil and add mustard seeds. When they start to splutter, add the shallots and sauté well until they start to brown.
