Naadan Crab Fry

With a naadan taste, this crab fry is delicious and succulent.


6- Fresh crab
2 tsp - Chilly powder
1/4 tsp - Turmeric powder
5 - Sliced Shallots
2 - Sliced green Chili
1" piece - Crushed Ginger
Curry leaves
Salt to taste
Coconut oil is the best....or Sesame oil


1) Heat oil in a pan, add green chili, ginger, sliced shallots and curry leaves. Fry lightly and then add red chili powder, turmeric powder. Stir for a minute.

2 )Add cleaned crab and mix in with the masala. Add salt to taste. Cover the pan with a tight lid and cook on a low heat for 5 minutes. Crab will cook in its juice.Check on the crab, to see if it's cooked. Add more oil and fry the crab.

Serve with rice or chapathi.

This is a simple recipe. The crab i prefer to cook with, has a blue coloration on its legs...Mostly available in asian markets. These crabs taste the best.
