Does it taste as sinful as it looks? Hell yeah. Sky-rocketed cholesterol devils covered in thick sugary sauce, that is a no-no recipe for the health conscious. Indulge in them sparingly, but when you do, enjoy them to the fullest. That’s what I’d say.
This is one of my mother’s signature dishes. She doesn’t do this often, in fact, it has been years since she cooked this. After a super early trip to the market one Sunday, she came home with a bag of fresh big squids and I was cheering like a little girl. Oh my gosh, are we going to cook “Cumi Kecap”? That’s what we call in Indonesian. Squid with soy sauce stir fry.
The tentacles are stuffed inside the squid. The whole dish is slowly simmered in sweet sauce to perfection. When you take your first bite, the soft stuffing inside just burst with texture and flavors. The gooey black sauce is like the dark evil brother. And the dish shines perpetually!
