Stir-Fried Squid with Mustard Seeds
From "At Home with Madhur Jaffrey"

1lb cleaned squid
2 cloves garlic, crushed to pulp
1 tsp salt
4 Tbsp cilantro, well chopped
1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne
1 Tbsp chickpea flour
10-15 fresh curry or 6 basil leaves
3 Tbsp olive or canola oil
1/2 tsp brown mustard seeds
2 dried hot red chilies
1 Tbsp lemon juice
Freshly ground black pepper

Cut bodies of squid crossways into 1/4in rings and separate tentacles , cutting any that seem very long. Wash well, drain in a colander, then pat dry. Combine squid, garlic, salt, cilantro, cayenne, flour, and leaves in a bowl. Mix well and set aside for 15min. Put oil in non stick frying pan over medium high. When hot drop in mustard seeds. A few seconds later put in the red chilies. They will darken quickly. Now put in the squid and spice mix. Stir and fry on high for 1 1/2-2 minutes. Turn off the heat, add the lemon juice and black pepper. Stir to mix.
