Goa is a state on the west coast of India known for its seafood dishes. Curry leaves resemble small, narrow bay leaves and are available in Indian and gourmet markets. "Blooming" the mustard seeds in oil intensifies their aroma and flavor. Serve this entrée with Indian flatbread, called naan.
32 mussels (about 1 1/4 pounds), scrubbed and debearded
