    Ground masala


    1. 1
      Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven. Add the onions and fry over medium-high heat until the edges turn light brown. Next add the ginger and continue frying for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Put in the ground masala and stir for another 1 to 2 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add the salt, coconut milk, and 1 cup water and bring to a boil. Now put in the mussels, spooning some of the sauce over them. Cover and steam 7 minutes or until all the shells open. Remove from the heat. Discard any shells that aren't open.
    3. 3
      Sprinkle with the lemon juice and cilantro and stir gently. Spoon the mussels into individual bowls along with some of the sauce. Serve immediately.

      This is an excellent recipe. I had no cayenne, so I used ground pequin peppers. Yummy. Had with Chucumber (I used Chucumber (Indian Cucumber Salad)).

      Brilliant ..... delicious .... need I say more ?? I added king prawns to the mix too and it's delightful. Should think it's nice with chicken as well. Although I substituted Cilantro for Corriander (if you like it)
