... or Creamy Crab Curry. Nicked this recipe from my sister in law. Perfect for breaking fast! Especially when paired with turmeric-marinated fried fish and extra sour sambal belacan.
Very easy to make.
2-3 pieces flower crabs, halved and thoroughly cleaned 150ml - 200ml coconut milk 1 onion 3 fresh red chillies, deseeded 1cm turmeric slice 1 lemongrass, bruised 1 asam keping or garcinia atroviridis Salt
Blend together or pound onion, chillies and turmeric. Heat 1 tb oil in a pot. Add the blended stuff and stir fry for a few minutes. Add crab pieces and coat them well. Add coconut milk, lemongrass and asam keping. Let simmer for a few minutes and add salt to taste.
Note: Ensure that the gravy does not get to a rolling boil as it will become curdly-like. Just make sure crabs cook well slowly on low heat.
