squid in soy sauce

original recipe from my mom
thanks mom :)
credit also goes to May Goh for sharing her recipe
a friend who have the same enthusiasm and passion in cooking!

let's get started

marinate 4 cleaned squids with 2 Tabsp dark soy sauce

heat 2 Tabsp oil in a pot over medium fire 

sautee 1 diced onion followed by 2 crushed garlic and thinly sliced 1/2" ginger

pour in 2 cups water and add in 1 thinly sliced potato and allow to boil and cook

add in 5 dried red chillies and 2 Tabsp light soy sauce with 1 teasp salt

allow to boil and simmer before adding in the marinated squids

let the squids boil for about 2 minutes stirring it for thorough cooking

remove the squids from the pot and put it on a serving plate

simmer the gravy for another 5 minutes to thicken it
mash up some of the potatoes inside so the gravy thickens naturally

off the fire and pour the gravy by the sides of the squids and serve immediately

a word on cooking squids

squids cook very fast so once you see the flesh turning opaque white in color and firmed up, it is time to remove from the heat. Prolonged heating would shrink the squids and make them very hard just like rubber
