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 -- 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
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.
