Spicy Guinataang Pusit

Intrigued by Tito Rolly's message on my other blog, I attempted to cook this. Another First Time, First Served. How spicy can you get? Well, our ears were burning hot! The recipe tomorrow.
I’ve never tried cooking guinataang pusit before so as soon as I read Tito Rolly’s comment, I got curios. He mentioned “spicy adobong pusit and foods with gata” and so I thought of a good combination. Spicy Adobong Pusit? I cook adobong pusit but not spicy.. and then another idea..what if I cooked it with coconut milk and make it spicy? I tried "goggling Guinataang Pusit recipe I could follow but couldn't find one, so here I am, posting my experiment. Believe me, it worked.


1 cup of coconut milk
½ kilo of squid, drained and cleaned (including the ink or your guinataang squid will be black)
½ medium onion, finely chopped
½ tomato, coarsely chopped
about 5 green sili (spicy ones)
2 dried red sili (chopped, depending on how brave you are)
1 cup of coconut milk
salt to taste

When I cook something with coconut milk, I always turn the creamiest part of the coconut milk into oil, where you let the cream boil until it is reduced to gravy like thickness and consistency, and rendering a bit of oil in the process (I’ll call this semi-oil muna).

Once it has turned into “semi-oil”, add the onions and sauté for about 1 minute. Add the tomato and the green and red sili. Cook for about 1 minute. Add the squid, stir and cover the pan. Simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes. Cooking it longer will make your squid tough.

The taste improves if left in the fridge overnight.

Pinoyblog? I still post pero once in a while lang. I tested the water and I think it worked for me. The traffic is quite good and I couldn't ask for more. Thanks for noticing (compliment ba?) that I refer a lot to wifely and in our(baka karamihan ako din ang visitor-hehe)..got slighted by an e-mail(er) asking me about how one should be included on my list of blogs(ikaw ba yon?)I visit..honestly, kung gusto mong maisama, just let me know, isasama kita..wala lang talaga akong time mag blog hop..besides, before I add someone, I ask first kung puwede silang i-link and if I don't get a response..that means, NO NO! Kay Cel, Manang and JDMom, it was mutual (I hope)

Hi TingAling, yes, it certainly was mutual (linking).

I love spicy foods, I think I will try this, and try not to get burned :)
