   Cockles/Clams or Khubbe in Konkani are a popular type of edible shellfish in Mangalore. They are available in 3 varieties ie. Khubbe,Tisre or Kalva. They are collected by raking them from the sands at low tide.

There are many ways of preparing cockles. Either in a dry style with a simple array of spices and coconut as in this recipe called "Khubbe Sukke" meaning 'cockles in a dry spicy coconut masala' or served as "Khubbe Mutlees" where 'cockles are cooked in a spicy rich coconut gravy with rice dumplings' (mutlees).

To make Khubbe Sukke you will need:

Fresh Cockles: 100
Coconut grated: 1 no.
Salt to taste

For Grinding:
Dry red Chillies (bedagi/ kashmiri):12
Whole Cumin: 1 tsp
Pepper corns: 10 no
Turmeric: 1/2 tsp
Tamarind juice extracted from marble size piece

Mustard seeds: 1tsp
Garlic flakes 2nos.
Curry leaves: 1 sprig

1. Grind masala.
2. Crush garlic flakes.
3. Heat oil in a large vessel, add crushed garlic flakes, once it browns add mustard seeds and curry leaves. Once the seeds crackle add the ground masala paste and coconut, fry well for 5 minutes.
4. Add the cleaned opened cockles and stir well to allow masala to coat the cockles, if its very dry add 2 -3 tbsps water. Close the vessel and cook for 10 mins.
