Kerala kakka erachi thoran



Today I am sharing the recipe of Kerala Kakka Erachi Thoran / Kerala Clams Thoran / Kerala clams stir fry with coconut. I got this recipe from my mom, actually she used to prepare this dish whenever we get some fresh clams back in kerala. Kakka erachy thoran goes really well with rice and is very easy to prepare too, but the cleaning process is a bit time consuming one. We have to remove its intestine and wash it nicely under water.

Serves ~ 2 adults

Ingredients

Clam meat / Kakka Erachy ~ 450 grams
Shallots / Kochu ulli ~ 15-20 nos ( Finely sliced )
Crushed ginger ~ 1 tsp
Crushed garlic ~ 1 tsp
Green chillies ~ 4-5 nos
Red chilly powder ~ 1 tsp - 2 tsp ( Use according to your spice preference. )
Turmeric powder ~ 1/2 tsp
Black pepper powder ~ 1/2 tsp
Home made garam masala ~ 1/8 tsp
Grated coconut ~ 3/4 cup
Mustard seeds / Kaduku ~ 1/2 tsp
Dry red chillies / Unakka mulaku ~ 2 nos
Curry leaves ~ 2-3 stems
Coconut Oil
Salt to taste

Method

  • First remove the black color intestine of clams and wash it nicely. Then let it drain for about 15 minutes.
  • Next heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and when it crackles, add curry leaves followed by sliced shallots, chopped green chillies, crushed ginger & garlic and saute till shallots become soft.
  • Then lower the flame and add red chilly powder and turmeric powder and fry for about 30 seconds. Next add black pepper powder along with clams & salt and mix it nicely. Then cook uncovered in a medium-low flame for around 15-20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile coarsely grind grated coconut & dry red chillies and add that to the cooked clams and mix it nicely and let it cook for another 5-10 minutes. Before removing from the flame add some more curry leaves and sprinkle garam masala.

Enjoy kakka erachi thoran with rice.

Cheers!!
