Coconut Garam Masala Crab

I love crab and I can eat them everyday if I want to! I'm always trying to find other ways to cook them. Tonight, I decided to prepare them using my Indian spices. This is another simple recipe that anyone can enjoy. I took pictures step by step so that you can easily follow the cooking instructions. Prepare to get your hands dirty! This is one messy delicious meal!

Ingredients and Preparation:
1-2 serving

1 large fresh dungeness crab cleaned, legs and body chopped
1 cup of coconut milk
1 tbs garam masala powder
1/2 tsp ground red chili pepper
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 cup of fresh basil leaves
6 cloves of fresh minced garlic
1 medium sliced yellow or white onion
3 tablespoon of vegetable oil

Pre-heat the wok and add the oil; when the oil is hot, add the garlic and fry until golden brown

Add the onion and stir fry for about 3 minutes until they are limp

Add the garam masala, stir and cook for about 1 minute

Add the cumin seeds, stir and cook for about 1 minute

Add the coconut milk

Stir well and cook for about 2 minutes

Add the crab pieces and coat well with the mixture

Add the basil leaves, stir, cover and cook in low heat to prevent from burning. Cook and let it steam by not removing the cover for about 25 minutes.

The crab is ready to be served with some hot steamed rice! Enjoy!
