  • About

This dish might have been cooked for a maharajah by a memsahib as it is rather Anglo-Indian in character. The rich flavour of both mussels and mushrooms go exceptionally well with traditional Indian spices. This can easily be served at a dinner party as you can prepare it in advance and simply reheat it at the last moment. If you cannot find fresh mussels use ready-cooked ones (but not those preserved in brine) and halve the weight.
