- ½ cups of oil
- 5-6 small cups of rise

Scrape the cuttlefishes carefully, not to break the bag of ink at least to the half of them in order for the rise to turn black with the special taste.
Brown the crumbed onion with oil, and turn the sliced cuttlefishes for a while.
Pour 3-4 cups of water, the tomato paste, salt, pepper and leave the cuttlefishes to boil and soften.
Add the rise, water if needed and stir carefully. The rise will be ready when its juice will be totally absorbed.
