Wow..I love crabs more than anything ,and mostly any non vegans delight.I think there is
no need of skill to cook crab,as the flavor of its meat is awesome.My mother was a
specialist in making crab curry ,and the accompanying kiri kos (raw jak
fruit kernels cooked in coconut milk)with dal makes me drool even now.Today i would like
to give you a recipe for Crab masala.This masala is good served with any type of food ,but
to spice up your boring days ,just a simple curry,rice and this masala is satiating.
For the recipe now
1 kilo crabs (any variety)
2 big onions chopped fine
3-4 green chillies chopped
3-4 tomatoes pureed
1 tblsp.chilli powder
1 tblsp coriander powder
1 tsp.pepper powder
1 tsp.cummin seed powder
1 tsp.fenugreek seeds
1 tsp.mustard seeds
1 tsp.garam masala
1 tblsp.ginger garlic paste
1 tsp aniseed or saunf +curry leaves ground dry and set aside for final seasoning
2 tsp.corn flour or rice flour
salt to taste
1/4 cup sesame oil
few coriander leaves
Wash the cleaned and cut crabs(it’s better to cut into four).Heat the oil in a pan,and half
fry the crabs.Remove and keep aside.In the same oil,add mustard seeds ,and curry leaves.
Next add the chopped onions with a tsp of chilli powder and salt and saute for 5 minutes.
Next add the rest of the spices except for the crab and the powdered saunf.Cook till
oil separates and you get a nice color.Now add the crab and half cup water.
Add the cornflour or rice flour and cook till well blended.Finally add the saunf+curry leaf
powder.Remove from fire and garnish with coriander leaves.
