Kerala Style Mussel Fry (kallumakai fry)

Mussels (kallumakai) are a delicacy in the north Malabar side of Kerala, they are made into a curry, fried, steamed and even cooked as a spicy biryani.
My mom prepared them for lunch today and they turned out crispy a bit spicy with a hint of thick coconut milk, they were just amazing.

This dish also happens to be my most favourite side dish along with rice and lentils.

Here's the easy recipe for mouthwatering  Kerala style you guys !


 
Use fresh mussels for best results and make sure you clean them thoroughly.
For 250 g medium size mussels
 
Marination
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 red chili powder
salt to taste
 
For the masala
1 large onion chopped
6/8 chopped garlic
3/5 green chili slit
Few curry leaves
Small piece of tomato
1/4 tsp red chili powder
Small piece chopped ginger
2 tbs thick coconut milk
 
 
                                      
Marinate the mussels for 15 min, then cook with less than half cup water on medium heat

Once the mussels are cooked in another pan add in oil and saute the garlic, ginger and green chili.

Add in curry leaf and saute another min then add in the onion, saute till pink then add in salt and the red chili powder. Cook for 5 min then add in the tomato.
