Neeli Hinga Udda (Mussels curry)

on August 22, 2013

This one’s my mom’s recipe, and one among my favorites 😛

Mussels has always been my favorite, But as in India, Cleaning mussels has always been time consuming, and hence it was rarely cooked in our house.

But here in Dubai, as we get cleaned mussels, I can satisfy my taste buds anytime 😀 😀

This is a typical konkani curry with coconut and asafotida, Goes well with boiled rice 🙂


  • Mussels : 500gms
  • Coconut Gratings : about half a coconut
  • Red chillies (Roasted) : 10
  • Asafotida : 1tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Tamarind : a small lemon sized ball


  • Boil the mussels for 15min
  • Grind tamarind, chillies and coconut to a smooth masala using little water
  • In a pan, make a thick gravy using the ground masala and water
  • Bring to a boil, Add the boiled mussels, salt and simmer for 10min
  • Add the asafotida and mix well
  • Serve with boiled rice
