Method

    Roast besan and rice flour lightly and keep aside.
  • Mix the fried and ground masala with roasted besan and rice flour and knead together along with soaked tamarind pulp add salt to taste and keep this dough aside. It will form the filling.
  • Fill this dough in split crabs and fasten with a thin thread so that the filling does not spill.
  • Heat 2 tbsp oil in a wok or kadai, add 2 chopped garlic cloves, red chilli powder and about a cup of water, bring to a boil and put in the stuffed crabs cover and cook for about 20 minutes on low flame.
  • Garnish with coriander, onions and lemons.
  • These crabs can be eaten with traditional bhakris, or rotis, or even rice.
  • If you do not want gravy, let all the water boil off leaving only the stuffed crabs flavored with masala.
  • You may also grind thin legs of the crabs together with the masala and add it to the cup of water to form the gravy, this gives more flavor and aroma to the gravy.

Crabs are available in plenty in all coastal areas. They are rich in calcium and are an excellent tonic for people of all age groups.
