Squid is my favorite seafood. What is usually try is Squid fry with lots of spices and grated coconut, even my family loves that. But this seems to be an equally interesting recipe of squid, which seems to be a Thai speciality. I would love to try this, may be with some extra spiciness and seasoning. Thanks for sharing the recipe, ThaiLady! :)

Hi TriThaiFood! this recipe seems to be a Thai recipe. Though I never tried eggs and squid combo, however, this seems to be an interesting combo. Can you please tell if I should use fresh squid or frozen one will also be good for this recipe??
