Kakka erachi thoran/ Kerala clams stir fry with coconut (Serves 5)

Kakka erachi thoran

This is another great recipe from my mom’s cooking repository. As I have said in my previous recipe post she is  great when it comes to cook seafood. This was such an amazing thoran that I kept on eating it as a snack than as a side dishSmile. I know the picture is a little out of focus, blame me for that, I was in a hurry to photograph but will definitely update it as soon as I prepare it again, please bear with this photograph until then. So hope you all will enjoy making this kakka erachi thoran!!!!
