  Mussels 2 Pound
  Peanut oil/Vegetable oil 1 Tablespoon
  Salted black beans 2 Tablespoon, rinsed, mashed (canned)
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), finely chopped
  Ginger 1 Teaspoon, finely chopped
  Red chili 2 , finely chopped (fresh, or more to taste)
  Fresh cilantro roots 1 Tablespoon, finely chopped
  Chinese rice wine/Dry sherry 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Lime juice 2 Tablespoon
  Sugar 2 Teaspoon
  Fresh cilantro leaves 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), roughly chopped

1. With a stiff brush, scrub and remove dirt and grit from the mussels. Remove beards and discard open mussels that don’t close when tapped.

2. Place a large, deep lidded pan on low flame and heat oil in it.
3. Drop black beans, garlic, ginger, red chili, and coriander root in the pan. Stir, and sauté for about 2-3 minutes or until fragrant.
4. Turn the heat to high and pour wine in it.
5. Add half the mussels. Spread them in a single layer. Cover with lid, and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the mussels open. Discard any mussels that do not open.
6. Into a serving bowl, transfer the mussels. Cook the other half in the remaining gravy.
7. Now again transfer mussels to a serving bowl, leaving the cooking liquid in the pan.
8. Add lime juice, sugar, and coriander leaves in the pan. Stir and cook for 30 seconds.
9. Pour the sauce over the mussels.

10. Serve mussels hot with rice.
