Instructions Clean mussels properly. :- There is a portion which looks dark that needs to be removed. Soak the cleaned mussels in water mixed with turmeric powder and salt. :- Clean it 2-3 times. This is very much essential. :- A medium size mussel will come to 2 - 3 inches, you can cut to around 1 inch sizes. Mix the mussels with salt, chilly powder and keep it for 1 - 2 hours. Cook the mussels with 1/4 cup of water for around 5 minutes with salt. Sieve it and make the pieces dry (basically unsoak it). Heat 5 - 6 tbsp of gingelly oil in a non stick frying pan. Add garlic pieces and the cooked mussels, along with the crushed pepper. Stir well. Fry for about 15 mins. :- Do not deep fry it. Lower the flame and add the pickle powder and stir for 4 - 5 minutes, till it becomes dark red in colour. Once this is ready, transfer it into a steel vessel. Boil 100-150 gm of gingelly oil in the same frying pan and pour it over the mussels mixed with pickle powder and stir well. :- This forms the gravy for the pickle. Add vinegar and salt, if reqd. :- In a couple of days time, the pickle will be consistent and can be served.
