  • I used frozen oysters as I don’t have access to fresh oysters and I get it frozen from my hometown which is in a coastal region.
  • For frozen oysters, cook the freshly brought oysters with salt and a pinch of turmeric powder. Cool it down and freeze. It will be good to use for 2-3 weeks.
  • In a pan, take the oil. Add the onions and cook until they soften.
  • Add the chopped ginger-garlic and sauté for about 2 minutes.
  • Add the turmeric powder, red chilli powder & garam masala and cook for about a minute.
  • Now add the oysters, stir and add half cup of water.
  • Add salt (salt was added in frozen oysters) and coriander leaves and stir.
  • Cover and let it cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add the coconut. Stir and cook for 2 minutes or until the masala dries up.
  • Serve kalwa sukka or oyster masala with chapati/bhakri/roti and onion salad on the side.
