    I love any and all Indian food, although I’ve had very few fish or seafood dishes. This looks terrific. Crab has such tremendous flavor to begin with that pairing it with flavorful spices is a wonderful combo. Really nice dish – thanks for this.

    I feel like Americans eat too much meat, so I definitely am down with the philosophy of consuming more veggies and saving meat as a side/flavoring agent. This looks wonderful, particularly since I have good access to fresh crab!

    I am a curry lover however never can cook it right so I usually get them from the Indian restaurants – and yes, the crab and cuttlefish Indian curries are simply delicious. (Even deep fried crabs served there are yummy).

    TQ for sharing looks simple to prepare – just hope I can get it right..

    Cheers

    Hello Purabi. I don’t have a new post because of limited internet access but wanted to see what you are up to. Am glad as this crab dish is fabulous. When I first went to New Orleans, Louisiana it was a Friday evening. Went to a local tavern and the whole length of the bar was covered with newspapers, everyone was eating boiled crabs in front of them. They have a spice mixture called “crab boil” and they put a few ears of corn in the pot too. It was my first time eating crabs and the experience was a lot of tasty fun. Some people I subsequently met lived near bayous and would often set crab traps and in the evening have food for dinner. There are commercial rigs (trucks with all the equipment to boil and serve crabs) that go to businesses and such.
    As good as Louisiana boiled crabs are, I must say that your recipe is terrific (To me, Indians are the Kings of spices usage).
    Your photographs are exquisite, those two saucepans or pots are beautiful as well. I’m going to try this next time I get crabs. Unfortunately, in northeast Georgia (USA) I’m not near water.
    Thanks.

    When in Mumbai, I had crab at Mahesh Lunch. My question is: what variety of crab was served? It was not a variety that I’ve had anywhere else. Any help would be appreciated!

      Hi Sharon. It would probably be mud crab, it is very common in this part of the world! 🙂

    I am a crab lover from Sri Lanka. We roast a little rice and coconut powder it and add it to the marinate. Great taste. Thanks for your tips.
