recipe: Black Pepper Squids the Malaysian style! :D

السّلام عليكم
PEACE be upon YOU! ;)
yesterday i cooked squids for the first time! wheeeeeeeeee~ <<< duhh~ pity me.=,="
so, that's mean, it was also the first time i cleaned the squid by myself. LOL! xD
 i still remember, when i was kid, i called this as 'the sword'. >>>
 and i used to call this one as 'moustache'!! >>>
as usual, i searched for many different recipes and combine them all. :)
so, here's my combined recipes! :D
~ 1/2 kg of Squids, cut and cleaned
~ 1 Onion, cut in round
~3 cloves of Garlic, chopped
~1 Red Chilli, sliced
~ Cooking Oil
~2 spoonful of Black Pepper Sauce
~2 teaspoon of Black Pepper beans, crushed coarsely
~ a dash of Black Pepper powder
~2 spoonful of oyster sauce
~ a pinch of Sugar and Salt to taste

P/S: you could also add in other ingredients like Ginger and Tomatoes, or replace the Oil with Butter, Sugar with Honey, and the Salt with Fish Sauce.

1) Fry the Squids in a wok for a few seconds just to discharge excessive water. [some of other recipes asked us to soak the squids in boiling water]
 *picture: after it has been fried for a few seconds.
2) Take out the Squids into a bowl and set aside.
3) Add in a little bit more oil in the same wok, then saute the Garlic and the crushed Black Pepper Beans until fragrant.
4) Add in water at this point if you love to 'slurp' the gravy. ;)
5 ) Add in the Squids back, together with the Oyster Sauce, Black Pepper Sauce and a pinch of Sugar and Salt.
6) lastly, add in the Onion and Red Chilli.
7) Taste a bit and adjust the taste by adding a dash of Black Pepper Powder. Mix well, and voila! your Black Pepper Squids a.k.a. Sotong Lada Hitam is now ready to be eaten!

it's best serve with plain white rice. :D

TIPS: do not over-cooked the squids, or else it will be quite tough.

 oh ya, yesterday i also cooked the Smooth Egg Tofu [a.k.a. Tahu Jepun]. i'll share the recipe later on.
so, stay tuned! :DDD
here's the picture of yesterday dishes! :P >>>
