Grab some finger Licking Crab Roast from My Kitchen ;)


1 Kg Crab, cut and cleaned
4 small onions
2 tomatoes
2 large chillies
1 tsp ginger paste
1 1/2 tsp garlic paste
1 sprig Curry leaves
2 Tsp chilly powder
3 Tsp Coriander powder
1/2 tsp pepper powder
1/2 tsp chicken masala
1/2 tsp turmeric powder 
1/2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp curd
1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
2 tblsp Coconut oil
some coriander leaves finely chopped
2 tsp salt or according to your taste


1. Fill water in a boiling pot and add the crabs. Also add  a pinch of turmeric, salt and pepper. Let it boil for 15 minutes or until the crab shells turn orangish. Keep aside 2 to 3 scoops of crab water and drain the rest.

2. Add some oil in another pan and saute the onions, ginger, garlic, curry leaves until they turn golden brown for about 6 - 7 minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes and saute for another 3 minutes.

3. Make a paste of the masalas with warm water and mix it well with the sauteed mixture for about a minute.

4. Take 2 scoops of the crab water from the boiling crab and let it boil. Then add the cooked crab and mix well. Close the lid for 3 minutes. Add curd and then keep stirring until you get a thick brownish consistency. Sprinkle some coriander leaves and lemon juice.

I heart Crab roast soooooo much and I prefer it really HOT! Finger licking "you dont wanna stop"Good...yep yep yep! Oh,  here is a tip. Add more pepper to neutralize the cholesterol content in crab ;)...Now go make it and Enjoy it as much as I do ;)
