Hi foodies...Welcome to AYESHA'S KITCHEN. Here is the recipe for a perfect curry based crab dish which can be served along with rice, chappathi, paratha, dosa etc. Whenever I get fresh crabs, I prefer making this crab curry as it is so simple and delicious. Here marinated crab is shallow fried and then cooked in the coconut gravy which gives an aromatic flavor to this dish.
