Crab meat stir fry

20 Jun

A Good idea when  you have a few pieces of Flashy Crabs lying around.I know I know,you must be thinking to yourself,when does one ever find a few pieces lying around!So ,you need not make it necessarily with left over crabs but when u feel like treating yourself to a CRAB MEAT only dish,this one is the easiest to make.

One of these days I was in  dilemma with a single piece of Dungeness crab in my freezer along with a few crab legs as well.These were too less to make a curry out of but were too fleshy to discard.Some quick thinking gave me the idea to try crab cakes,when I cooked and pulled out the flesh another thought struck me.Which was crab meat stir fry.Its a good side  rice or roti or one can simply relish this with no main course(which is what I did).

  1. Cook washed crabs with salt and ginger and little bit turmeric for 40mts.
  2. Let it cool down,remove all the meat from the shells.
  3. In a pan,add some oil and fry green chillies.When they are done,fry the onions,ginger and curry leaves.
  4. When the onions are translucent,add chillypowder,and few tomato pieces.
  5. Mix well,add the crab meat and fry all of it for 1mt.
  6. If you like it a litte mushy add about 1/4 cup of water and adjust salt to taste.
  7. Eat as u like it!
