Eeral Thokku(10 minutes dish)

Hi guys, I am back with a mouth watering, hot and spicy Eeral Thokku(dry one). Great thing is that I like to cook non veg rather than eating it. This goes well with poori, chappathi, naan.....usually I make this for Sunday breakfast.

You can check whether your Eeral is cooked or not by cutting the eeral with the spatula ,if it cuts straight through, then it is cooked.
This is medium spicy. Adjust to your spice level.
