Read on to find out how you can cook curry with a Malaysian twist.
- 1 crab
- 1 tbsp. curry powder
- 1 large tomato, wedges
- 1 yellow onion, diced
- 2 pieces of curry leaves
- 250 ml. coconut milk
- Pinch of salt
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 5 shallots
- 2 stalks mashed lemongrass
- 1 tbsp. chili paste
- 1 tbsp. coconut oil
- Clean the crab. Before you start to cook curry, you first need to wash the most crucial ingredient--the crab. Remove the meat from the shell and cut it into small pieces. Marinate the crab meat with curry powder for about half an hour.
- Make the paste. To cook curry successfully, you will need to have a mouth-watering paste. The paste should go very well with white rice. To make the paste for the Malaysian crab curry, blend the garlic, shallots and lemongrass. When the mixture appears smooth, mix in the chili paste.
- Frying. Preparing the spices is the most important step if you want to cook curry that tastes fantastic. Heat up some coconut oil in a pan. Turn to medium heat before adding the paste and curry leaves. Cook until fragrant. Add the crab meat into the pan and switch to high heat.
- Simmering. When the crab begins to sizzle, add water and salt. Pour in half a cup of water and cover the pan to let the curry simmer for fifteen minutes under moderate heat.
- Thickening the gravy. To cook curry with a thick and flavorful gravy, pour in the coconut milk and wait until some of the liquid evaporates from the pan.
- If you are allergic to crab and think it is too troublesome to prepare, you can replace it with chicken.
