Heat 8cm of oil in a large saucepan until it reaches approximately 170°C. Carefully add the garlic, almonds and curry leaves to the pan and deep fry for 20-30 seconds, stirring constantly. Once the garlic and almonds have become lightly coloured and crisp remove the pan from the hat and carefully remove the ingredients from the pan to drain on kitchen paper

  • 40g of flaked almonds
  • 1 handful of curry leaves, fresh, frozen or dried

For the crispy squid set out three containers, filling one with the seasoned flour, one with the milk and leaving one empty. Coat the pieces of squid first in the flour and then in the milk, before coating it again in the flour. Shake off any excess flour and place the coated squid in the third container ready to cook

  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 135ml of milk
  • 225g of squid, cleaned and cut into rough 2-3cm squares

To serve, combine the squid with the fried almond, garlic and curry leaves together in a bowl. Stir through the chopped chillies and divide between four bowls, garnishing with a wedge of lime
