Spicy And Tasty South Indian Style Crab Curry | Crab Gravy With Coconut | Konkani Kurle Ambat

Here is a step by step preparation of South Indian Crab Curry.

Preparation Time: 60 minutes

Servings: 4

  • Crabs 8
  • Around 50 Prawns
  • 2 big Onions
  • 1 and ½ cup of grated Coconut
  • 1 table spoon Coriander seeds
  • 5 – 6 Red chillies
  • ½ table spoon Tamarind
  • ½ table spoon Turmeric powder
  • 2 table spoon Oil
  • Salt as per taste

  • Clean the crab with water first, separate the legs and break and take out the outer shell as shown in picture.
  • If the crab is big, cut them into 2 pieces.
  • Fry coriander seeds on a tawa for a while, and grind coconut, red chillies, tamarind, Turmeric powder to a smooth paste and keep the masala aside.
  • Heat 2 table spoon oil in a pan add sliced onions and fry until brown.
  • The curry tastes too good if we use prawns along with crab. Here I have used washed and cleaned prawns as well.
  • Now add the crabs and  prawns and cook for around 10 minutes.
  • Now add ground masala, salt and cook for another 10 minutes. 
  • Tasty crab curry is ready to be served with Rice.

 PS:  The curry has to sit in the prepared vessel for at least 2 -3 hours for the spices to combine.
