I am glad that I bumped into your blog. I have picked up two recipes for squid from your collection. I tried one of them. It was delicious but, please tell me how to make the squid soft and non-elastic.I will be really grateful.

Thanks & with regards,

Konchady : Thanks for trying.. and for this feedback :) The solution is not to cook the squid for long. Over cooking will make it rubbery.
