Crab Alle piyava Ghashi (Crab in ginger onion Ghashi)

Some dishes I have always stuck to the actual recipe which was passed on by my Ancestor and here is one of it , one of my most favourite way of cooking crabs is  incorporating it in this simple gingery flavoured based curry which I absolutely love. Vegetarians can substitute crab with any vegs of your choice my favourite being Mangalore cucumber for this type of curry . Now moving on to this recipe I am sure most of the Amchi household follow the same curry base and here is the way my mom has prepared and we have relished this curry all these years :D


5-6 Med sized crabs (washed, cleaned and cut into half)

2 'ginger (finely chopped)

1 small onion (finely chopped)

3-4 green chillies (cut into roundels)

10- 12 Fried Red chillies

1 and 1/2 cup coconut 

1 tsp tamarind 

salt to taste 

1 tbsp coconut oil (opt)
