Calamari Fusion Recipe Method
1. Add 1 tbsp. of olive oil into a large saucepan, at a medium heat. Add the ginger for about 20 seconds, stirring just to give the oil the taste. Then add the onions. Cook for around 4 minutes, stirring frequently.
2. Add the rice and coat it in the mixture, then add the coconut milk. Bring to the boil, then turn to a low heat to let it simmer. You can test the Basmati, which should be cooked in 8 to 10 minutes. Then you can either drain the liquid, or if you prefer you can leave some. Put the rice to stand on a cold surface with the lid on the saucepan.
3. Put the remainder of the olive oil into the non-stick frying pan, also on a medium heat. Remember that calamari cook quickly, and it is easy for them to become too chewy. Cook calamari for 2 to 3 minutes, test with a fork for succulence. Put into a large bowl. Next add the tomato to pan, cooking it until it is soft for 2-3 minutes.
4. Add the rice mixture to the calamari and also put in the tomatoes. Stir lightly to combine the ingredients. Season to taste with salt and pepper..enjoy!
