Crab Sukka -- Indian Crab Masala

This recipe was sent to me by my sister,Chaya, after I threatened to delete her name from this blog for her absence from contributing to this site. Just kidding! The truth be told my sister and my brother-in-law are awesome cooks who love cooking and entertaining! But I guess I am much better in self promotion than they are -- maybe they are just being humble, what can I say.. The crab sukka looks delicious -- I can't wait to request (maybe order) my sister to make it for me when I visit her next time. Till then, I will satisfy my craving for this dish by just drooling at the pictures. I have copy- pasted the recipe from the email Chaya sent me.    

Ingredients :

Chilies 25-30 nos+ coriander seeds 2 tbsps+ cummin seeds 1 tsp+ fenugreek seeds 1 tsp + pepper 1 tsp + turmeric powder 1/2 tsp + garlic 6-8 flakes + tamarind lime size + coconut, grated 1 no + onion, chopped 1 + salt to taste.

For Seasoning: Onion, chopped 1 no+ coconut oil 2 tbsp.

Preparation :

Fry the chilies, grated coconut, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds and pepper in a little oil.

Grind together the chilies, grated coconut, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds, pepper, turmeric powder, garlic and tamarind to a fine paste. Saute the onions in oil, till slightly brown. Then add the crabs, mix well & keep for a while till they change colour. Next add the roasted ground masala and cook for a while.Now add the tamarind water and simmer on low heat. If you require the consistency of a gravy, then add some water or else keep it dry.Serve hot with rice.


Thanks sistah for a great recipe!
