Mussels sauteed with ginger-garlic and spices. A spicy dish, and very common in Northern Kerala (Malabar). It can be served as an appetizer or as a side dish with rice.

That note "Tastes best with coconut oil" is so true!

(sunilbaindur) #9

Yes! These spices and the seafood flavours only get enhanced with coconut oil. It's a healthier option too. Jane would agree :)
