Kallummekkaya Olathiyathu (Mussel Stir Fry)

I got introduced to this by my Mother in law.  Before marriage I can say, I hardly had mussel meat, and I never liked it much. Now I like the taste, but the time it takes in cleaning, I always keep it as the last entry in my menu. When we went for the weekly shopping my husband insisted me in buying it. We get mussel meat here but the time again for cleaning, with my little naughty one in the side, I felt there is not much chance to buy it again in the coming days. So I decided to share the recipe fast, because finally the curry to get after preparation is too good.

  1. Not to be offensive, but I think you missed out some of the key steps, e.g. when the salt is added,

    • Dear Sdfs,

      I think you didnt read well. Adding salt is written in the 5th step below the first picture of the Method section.
