Kallummakaya Nirachathu / Stuffed Mussels

            
                   Also known as Arikadukka in Malabar region. It is usually prepared by using parboiled rice (soaking and then grinding). Here I prepared using rice flour. This is served hot as a starter or as a snack for tea.

Ingredients:

15-20 fresh mussels with shells
2 cups rice flour ( I used pathiri podi)
1/2 cup grated coconut
1-2 tsp fennel seeds
1 medium onion chopped
salt
hot water

For marination:
2 tbsp kashmiri chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
salt

Preparation:
  1. Clean the shell of the mussels and split open  through the slits with a knife without breaking the shells apart.  Remove all the dirts and  hairy substances ,wash it and keep aside.
  2. Grind grated coconut, fennel seeds and chopped onions to a coarse paste.
  3. In a bowl, add rice flour and salt. Add ground coconut mixture to this, mix well  and make a smooth dough by adding  enough hot water (about 1 1/2-2 cups) .
  4. Stuff the cleaned mussels with the dough and steam it for 15- 20 minutes.
  5. Once it is cooled, remove the shell carefully  and keep aside.
  6. Make a paste of kashmiri chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt adding little water.
  7. Heat oil in a pan, dip the steamed mussels in the paste and fry it till golden. Serve as a snack for tea...
