My mom used to make Crab Masala and I used to love it. A few weeks back, I found fresh crab in the market and suddenly remembered this dish so thought of making. I had a hard time cleaning it but it was kinda fun too.
I have made this dish in the Indian style. It tastes so delicious. You could serve this dish with dosa/crepe or hot steamed white rice.
Please do try it and let me know your thoughts. Thank you.
Step 1: Ingredients and Preparation Steps
- Cleaned and chopped crab - 2 big size

- Salt - to taste
- Heat oil in a pan.
- Add curry leaves, whole black pepper, cumin seeds and ginger garlic paste.
- Add onions and cook till it turns pinkish.
- Add tomatoes and cook till they are half cooked.
- Once the mixture cools down, blend it to a fine paste.
- Mix the paste with the crab and add water. Cook on high.
- Suddenly,, I felt, cooking in a pressure cooker would be easier so I transferred the mixture into a cooker and cooked for about 4-5 whistles.
- Open the cooker once it cools down. Serve and enjoy.
- You could serve it with hot steamed white rice and it tastes delicious.
