Kankada(Crab) Curry

  • Crab - 1
  • Potato - 1
  • Onion - 1
  • Bay leaf - 1
  • Ginger garlic paste - 1 Tbsp
  • Coriander powder - 1 tsp
  • Cumin powder - 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Red chilly powder - 1 tsp
  • Garam masala powder
  • Mustard oil - about 2 Tbsp
  • Salt - to taste
  • Water - about 2 cups
  • Get the crabs cleaned
  • Break into smaller pieces 
  • Take a large potato and cut it into medium sized cubes.
  • Heat some of the oil in a pan and fry the potatoes in it for about 5 minutes on medium heat, till they turn golden brown. 
  • Take them out and keep aside.
  • Chop the onion.
  • Heat the remaining oil in the same pan. Add the bay leaf and the onion. Stir fry for about a minute.
  • Add the ginger garlic paste.
  • Add in all the masala powders - coriander, cumin, turmeric and red chilly.
  • Mix well. Keep the heat on medium.
  • In about 5 minutes the masala would have cooked nicely and the pungency of the ginger garlic paste would have gone. Add salt to taste.
  • Add in about a cup and half of water. Turn the heat to high and bring to a boil.
  • Once the gravy starts boiling, dip in the sautéed potatoes and the crab pieces. Mix it all nicely and now reduce the heat to low-medium.
  • Cover it and let it simmer for about ten minutes - the crabs need to get cooked and also the gravy needs to get deep into it. Keep uncovering and stirring in between, but carefully making sure that you are turning the pieces slowly. Even the potatoes were semi-cooked so they might break.
  • Sprinkle the garam masala.
  • If you want more of the gravy, then add in another half cup of water.
  • Cook for about another 3-5 minutes. Switch off as it should be ready now.
