*Notes:

Kallumakkaya Fry / Kerala Style Mussels Fry is one of my favorite dishes of all time. It’s the best side dish or appetizer to be served with booze/drinks.

I got cooked and frozen Mussels from a local store near my home.

Before cooking frozen Mussels, try to thaw. If there’s any liquid try to dry it out as much as you can using kitchen tissue.

While cooking you can see a lot of water coming out from Mussels, make sure to keep the flame in high and allow all the liquid to evaporate. Don’t forget to stir occasionally.

Always adjust Chilli and Black Pepper Powder according to your taste.

Make sure to use Coconut Oil for the best tasting Kallumakkaya Fry / Kerala Style Mussels Fry.
