This is one of my favourite crab curries. Goes well with rice. And did I come up with this recipe? o no, I found this when I was bloghopping one day and the full credit for this delicious curry goes to Maria of Flavours of Mumbai. http://www.flavorsofmumbai.com/
Crab: 1 kg
Fennel seeds/Perinjeerakam: 1 tbsp
Cumin seeds: 1/2 tbsp
Coconut Grated: 1 cup
Onion: 2 medium
Ginger Garlic Paste: 1 tbsp
Tomato: 1 large chopped
Turmeric Powder: 1/2 tsp
Chilly Powder: 1.5 tsp
Coriander Powder; 2 tsp
Garam Masala: 1 tsp
Salt and Oil: as required
Coriander leaves and curry leaves: 2 sprigs each
Heat oil and fry the fennel and cumin for a minute on low flame.
Add 1 onion diced, ginger garlic paste and the grated coconut for sometime.
Make sure the flame is low and the coconut just have to change color (dont make it too brown)
Let this cool and make a paste of it and keep aside.
In the same pan, heat oil, and fry the other onion diced, tomato chopped and the coriander leaves.
After a few minutes, add the crab and all the masalas (turmeric powder, chilly powder, coriander powder and garam masala)
Mix properly on low flame.
Add the coconut paste and required water to it and let it boil.
Once it boil, lower the flame and let it get cooked.
When it is done, add the curry leaves and take off fire.
Goes well with white rice.
