Chili Crab Recipe

Chili Crab Recipe

Ingredients :

2 crabs of about 1lb each

1/2 cup plain flour

4 tablespoons cooking oil

1 medium onion, chopped finely

5 cm ginger, grated

4 cloves garlic, chopped

5 chopped red chilies

2 cups ketchup sauce

1 cup water

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

2 tablespoons brown sugar

Cooking Method :

 

Thoroughly clean the crabs, and cut them into 2 pices with a heavy cleaver. Rinse them under running water to remove all the unwanted parts. Using the side of the cleaver, hit the legs and claws of the crabs to crack them so that they are easier to be eaten later. Dip the crab pieces in some flour to fully coat them.

 

Heat a large work with 2 tablespoons of the oil and cook the crabs until the shell turns red, and remove aside. Reduce the heat to medium and add more oil to the wok. Add the onion, ginger, garlic and chili to cook for another 5 to 10 minutes, stirring.

 

Add the ketchup, water, chili sauce, soy sauce, sugar and vinegar. Bring to boil and simmer for a further 15 minutes. Add back the crabs and simmer in the sauce until the meat becomes white.

 

Best serve together with steamed white rice to make a complete and delicious meal.
