Though most like a Crab in gravy, or stuffed, both of these recipes are on my blog, this time I thought I would do a Dry variation of Crab.
1/2 tsp mustard seeds, 6-8 curry leaves and a finely chopped onion in a table spoon of oil, in that sequence, adding a teaspoon of Tamarind paste once the onion has turned translucent. Add the washed and drained crabs to the seasoning.
Lightly roast and grind to paste:
6 to 7 pods of Garlic, 1/4 tsp Fenugreek seeds, 1/2 tsp Cumin seeds , 1 1/2 tsp Poppy seeds, 1/4 tsp Mustard seeds, 10 to 12 Kashmiri Chillies, 1/2 cup grated Coconut.
Add the paste over the simmering crabs and let it cook, Mix well and if any water is left over let it dry while stirring over high flame.
