Ingredients

How to Make Crab Fry with Kokum

  • Remove the claws very carefully. If you are a beginner, use kitchen gloves as a precaution.
  • Next take out the legs.
  • Press hard at the very bottom to crack open the shell.
  • Remove the hard outer shell completely and use the flesh.
  • Pour 1/2 cup of water in a large pan and add the crab pieces, green chillies, minced ginger, salt, kokam/tamarind and cook on low flame for 5-7 minutes or until the water evaporates. Keep aside (Do not overcook the crab).
  • In a large non-stick skillet, heat 2 tbsp of oil and add the mustard seeds and curry leaves. When the seeds start to sputter, add the chopped shallots and garlic and fry well until golden brown.
  • Add turmeric powder, red chilli flakes and pepper powder and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Add the crab pieces and cook for 2-3 minutes to allow the flavours to blend well.
  • Serve hot with rice and dal or any curry of your choice.
