Ustad Hotel ‘Kallumakkayees’ (Mussels) Recipe

We’ve already shared a recipe inspired by Ustad Hotel, a Mallu movie, for authentic Malabari biryani. Today, we turn the focus to a little more off the wall recipe inspired by the movie; Kerala mussel fry.

About Ustad Hotel

Ustad Hotel is a drama about a young man Faizi (Dulquer Salman) who goes against his family’s wishes and becomes a chef running a hotel along with this grandfather. The movie was delightful and had stellar performances by Dulquer and the late Thilakan.

In the movie, Faizi befriends the Kallumakkayees, a band at the hotel. In Malyalam, Kallumakkayees means mussels, hence the inspiration for a dish featuring mussels.

Serve this dish with appams or unpolished rice.
