Turmeric powder – 1/2 teaspoon
Salt – to taste

Turmeric powder – 1 teaspoon

Vinegar – 2 cups
6) Oil – 125 ml

How to prepare


Take some fresh Kallumakkaya and keep it in refrigerator to cool after removing its outer coating. Remove its fleshy part from center using knife. You can also take its flesh by boiling or steaming it for sometime because fresh mussels contain some liquid which is evaporated during the process making it easy to remove. Mix the meat with the 2nd ingredients and fry it after making it dry. Now crush the 3rd ingredients without using water. If needed, you can use vinegar in place of water. Pour all the excess oil into a frying pan and start heating it. When it gets hot, add mustard to it and then add the rest.

Now pour the paste prepared using 3rd ingredients into it and fry it till oil is cleared. Add the left vinegar and some salt to taste. When the water gets almost dry, add Kallumakkaya and keep it aside after mixing it properly. When it becomes cool, store it in a clean and dry bottle. This is how you prepare a delicious Kallumakkaya (mussels) achar.
