Arikadukka/Stuffed Mussels


Arikadukka or Kallummakaya Nerachathu  or Stuffed Mussel is one of the famous snacks in Kannur,especially in Thalassery.I tasted this first from one of my friends during our hostel days and it was so yummy. I made this 6months back when we were in Netherlands.There we used to get lots of fresh mussels.You can make this only with fresh mussels, as this one needs the fresh shells to make.

Here goes the recipe...

Ingredients:

Mussels -15-20

For Stuffing

Rice flour -2cups
Shallots -4
Grated Coconut - 1/4cup
cumin seeds -1tsp
salt


For the batter

Chilli powder -2tbsp
Turmeric powder- 1/2tsp
Rice Flour -1tbsp
Salt

Method

 Boil the mussels  with enough water,till the shells open.Drain it and clean the mussels.Keep it aside.

Grind together shallot,coconut, and cumin seeds.Add this paste and salt to rice flour .Mix well and make a smooth dough by adding enough hot water.Stuff the mussels with the dough and steam it for 15 minutes.Allow to cool.Remove the shell.

Mix together chilli powder,turmeric,riceflour  and little salt.Add 2-3tbsp of water to this and make a batter.
Heat oil in a pan.dip the steamed mussels in the batter and deep fry it.
