Then I saw two basketsful of crustaceans this evening; one basket of river crabs and one of mudcrabs. The latter were just RM15 a kilo.
I chose three firm ones and rushed home. We’re having crabs for dinner tonight!
Here’s my version of dry curry crabs:
3 mud crabs (wash and cut into pieces)
3 tablesp curry powder
2 teasp chilli powder (or less)
2 big onions, minced
5 cloves garlic minced
1 tablespoon ground ikan bilis
1 teasp sugar
1 table soy sauce
half cup milk
4 sprigs curry leaves
- Heat up a ladle of vegetable oil in a wok. Add minced onions and garlic and saute till fragrant.
- Add curry leaves, then ground ikan bilis, curry and chilli powder.
- Add in crabs and fry. Add sugar, soy sauce and milk.
- Fry till dry and dish out.
