How to Make Andhra Crab Meat Masala
1.Take a pan, add oil and saute onion, garlic, green chilli, curry leaves along with ginger-garlic paste. Saute till light golden brown.
2.Add the processed crabs and saute for 5 minutes.
3.After the crab changes its colour to deeper in 10 minutes on a medium heat, start adding the dry spice powders- turmeric, coriander, red chilli, Kashmiri red chilli, cumin, garam masala powder and salt as per taste. Stir in the spices to ensure the crab is coated well with the spices.
4.Add chopped tomato and chop masala and lemon juice. Stir them into the crab mixture. Add half cup of water since crab cooks from its own moisture in the meat as well.
5.Cover with a lid and cook on simmered flame for 5-6 minutes, until the water from the meat starts oozing out.
6.Remove the lid and check for the spice levels and adjust if needed.
7.Once done, garnish the Andhra crab meat masala with chopped fresh coriander and serve with steamed rice and rotis.
