One more lovely Kerala recipe from Maria.

South Indian Crab Curry - 1kg
Clean and quarter crab
1/4 oil
2 big onions, chopped and smashed (traditionally done on a large stone)
20 curry leaves
6 green chillies, slit
10 small cloves of garlic, smashed
2 tbs. chile powder
3 tbs. corriander powder
1/2 tbs. turmeric powder
1/2 tsp. pepper powder
2 tbs. garam masala

1 1/2 cups coconut milk
1/2 tsp salt to or to taste

In a large skillet heat the oil and add the onions, smashed garlic and green chili. After some time add the smashed ginger until they are soft. Chili can be added as per how spicy you like it. When cooked through, add the quartered crab and cook until done (red shelled).

Spices can be purchased at a variety of stores. Fresh curry leaves are available at Dino's Grocery Mart on Notre Dame Ave. in Winnipeg.
