Ari kallummakaya/ Ari kadukka (Stuffed mussels)

Ari kadukka is a most popular Malabar sea food recipe. My mother prepared it, I just took photos :)

Fresh mussels                                          : 20
Par boiled rice                                        :  2 cup
Grated coconut                                       : 1 cup
Chopped Shallot                                      :  1 tbsp
Fennel seed                                             :  3 tsp
Salt to taste
Chilli powder                                          :  2 tsp
Turmeric powder                                    : ½ tsp
Oil for frying

  1. Clean the mussels and open the shell (to open the shell incert knife at straight portion of the slit and slide around carefully. Clean and keep aside
  2. Wash and soak the rice for 4- 6 hour
  3. Drain rice and mix with grated coconut, shallot, fennel seed, salt and  grind with little water until get thick dough
  4. Fill the mussel with dough and steam it for 25-30 minute and let it cool
  5. Remove the shell and marinate with chilli powder, turmeric powder and pinch of salt
  6. In a pan heat oil and shallow fry marinated mussels both side  
(Note: Instead of grinding rice you can use rice flour. For this preparation you have to grind coconut, shallot and fennel seed  first then mix this into rice flour and add equal amount of boiled water with salt into it (for 1 cup rice flour 1 cup water). Mix properly and make thick smooth dough.)
