Crab Masala/ Peetalu Eguru

I never tasted Crab meat but my husband says it tastes yummy. And he loves crab meat. In India we get small crabs where u clean them and cook as it is. But here In US we dont get those small crabs but get the jumbo size crab legs etc...
Last week my hubby bought these huge crab legs and wanted me to cook. Its been very long time that i cooked crab meat. Cooked it in bit different way and i was success. My Hubby loved it soo much. So here goes the recipe for u all.
We need:



Crabs legs 6
Spring onion/ green onions 2 bunches
Red onion 1 large
Green chillies 4
Tomato 1 large
Ginger garlic paste 1 1/2 sp
Garam masala 1sp
Haldi 1/4 sp
Chilli powder 1sp
Cilantro chopped 1/4 cup
Salt to taste
Oil 4 sps



Method:



Chop green onions and onions.
Cut the crab legs also to medium to small pieces.
U have to cook this crab with the shell on so need not take of the meat from the shells.
Heat oil in pan and add onions and green onions. Saute for 2 mits and add green chillies and ginger garlic paste.
Cook for 5 mits and add chilli powder, haldi, salt and tomato pieces.
When tomatoes are cooked add garam masala and crab pieces.
Saute for 2 mits and add 1 cup water and presser cook.
Cook till water is evaporate dand the meat is cooked.
U would know whether the meat is cook when the shells become little soft. or else u can tae out the meat and see if its cooked.
Garnish with cilantro and serve with hot rice.
