CRAB CURRY WITH GINGER (KURLA ALLE PIYAVA GASSI)



After a short break I am back again with lip smacking fish recipes.  This is the season of crabs and crabs of various sizes are available in the market.  So, I thought of starting with a crab curry recipe for you all.   “kurlo” means crab, ‘alle’ means Ginger,  piyavu means Onion and gessi means curry in Konkani language.
CRAB CURRY  WITH GINGER (KURLA ALLE PIYAVA GASSI)




 Ingredients
Crab                         --  ½ kg cut and cleaned
Coconut                  ---  grated  1 cup
Red chillies            ---  15 to 20  fried in little oil
Big onion                --   1 No  chopped
Green chilly           --    2 nos
Ginger                    --  1 inch piece chopped into small pieces
Coconut oil           --    1 tsp
Salt to taste

Method
Cook crab in 1 cup of water for 15 minutes in an Earthen pot or any vessels (I prefer to prepare fish items in earthen pots because it gives a different fragrance and taste to the preparation).  For masala grind grated coconut and red chillies into fine paste.  Add this paste to the cooked crab and boil it for 5 minutes.  Mix the onion, green chilly and ginger with salt  thoroughly  and add to the boiling crab mixture and cook for 5 minutes.  Switch off the gas add one tsp of coconut oil on top of it.
Your crab curry is ready to serve with rice, chappathi, roti etc.
