Fragrant Flower Crabs ...............


Recently I cook this fragrant flower crabs using curry leaves, soya bean pastes, chillis, garlic, ginger and eggs to bring out a nice salty and spicy flavour to the crabs. It is uniquely fragrant and the scramble eggs together with the crabs makes it a wonderful appetising dish.........Here is my recipe to share...............


Uncooked flower crabs..............

Ingredients:


4 nos. flower crabs -cleaned and quartered
3 nos. red chillis - chopped
2 tbsp chopped garlic
3 sprigs curry leaves -removed stems and washed
2 cm knob ginger - juliennes
1 tbsp soya bean paste
2 eggs - lightly beaten
2 tbsp oil or a knob of butter (optional)
100 ml of water


Drizzle in the beaten eggs....................

Method:


Heat oil in pan....fry garlic, chillis, soya bean paste, ginger and curry leaves til fragrant. Then add flower crabs and stir fry for a minute or two til it change colour. Add a few tablespoon of water(100 ml) to crabs and cooked covered on medium high heat for about 5 minutes to 7 minutes. Remove cover and drizzle in the beaten eggs slowly while scrambling and mixing it thoroughly with the crabs til all the eggs are cooked. Serve it hot with rice.......
