Add tamarind juice and stir well to mix. Add seasoning and simmer for two to three minutes. Add grounded peanuts and black sauce for colour. Leave aside for use later.

To prepare the cuttlefish:
Season cuttlefish in one teaspoon chilli paste and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Fry in oil until cooked. Dish out and set aside.

To prepare the fritters:
Combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl. Mix in water gradually to form a dough. Leave aside for 30 minutes.
