How to make Crab Coconut Masala Fry

  1. Before cleaning the crab, the masala ingredients should be dry roasted.
  2. In a pan first dry roast each ingredient individually as each will take different time to get roasted. As the quantity is small, just toss the ingredient on a medium flame so that they don't get burned.
  3. Allow the rice to puff up and remove from heat before it gets burnt up.
  4. Cool the ingredients and grind to a fine paste by adding required water.
  5. In a wide bottom pan add water, a pinch of salt, turmeric powder and the ground masala, mix and keep aside.
  6. Wash and clean the crab. Remove the shell and take out the lungs. Keep the claws and legs intact with the crab.
  7. After cleaning and washing a crab immediately drop it into the masala mixed water in the pan, then clean the next crab. The crab should be placed in the water as soon as the shell is removed.
  8. After all the crabs get into the pan, place the pan on to the stove and allow it boil. After it starts to boil close the pan with a lid and allow it to cook on medium flame for 10 minutes, turning the crabs upside down once in a while.
  9. After 10 minutes, add 1 tbsp of oil and mix it. By now the water should have reduced to half. Time to taste for salt, it may need some more, don't add much as the crab gives the salty taste.
  10. Then after 5 minutes add the remaining oil and mix. Then add the shredded coconut and mix thoroughly so that the coconut gets evenly mixed up in the pan.
  11. Now keep the pan open and keep stirring once in a while for another 5 minutes in low flame.
  12. When the masala and coconut gels up together remove from heat.

My Tip:

This recipe needs less than quarter teaspoon of salt, so take care while adding salt. The masala powder is all purpose powder, you may use this powder for sambar, curry, vegetable fry.
