Crab Roast



Kochi is known for its backwaters, sea, the vivid forms of fishing and the wide variety of fish. Crabs taste  exotic even if it is simply boiled with a dash of salt. Crab Roast is an utterly spicy recipe that goes well with rice.  The one character you should have while eating crab is patience :- )

the ingredients

Crab - 500 gms
Ginger - 4 cm piece
Garlic - 10 cloves
Curry leaf - 1 sprig
Green Chilly - 1 small
Small onion - 10 to 15
Turmeric - 3/4 tsp
Chilly powder - 3/4 tsp
Pepper powder - 3/4 tsp
Cocum - 1 piece
Oil - 2 tbsp
Water - 3/4 cup
Salt - 1 to 1 1/4 tsp or to taste

the method

Clean the crab and cut it into four pieces. Break the legs of the crab to let the spice in.

Heat oil in a pan (preferably an earthern pot) and add the chopped small onions. When lightly brown add chopped ginger, garlic, green chillies and curry leaves. Stir it until light brown and then add turmeric, chilly powder and pepper. Stir well till the raw smell is gone. Add the crab pieces and salt. Stir for a minute and  add water and let it boil. Add 1 tsp salt and cocum. Simmer for about 15 - 20 minutes stirring occasionally. Adjust salt. Serve with rice.
