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 !
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.
Saute for a few min till the tomatoes are cooked then add in the mussels.
Be gentle and add in the mussels , cook till completely dry and well coated with the masala paste.
Last add in the coconut milk and saute for 2/3 min more.
Now your done, serve hot and enjoy yummy Kerala style mussels.
