Spanner Crabs With “Alavar” Sauce Recipe

  1. Heat the oil and saute the onions over medium heat until translucent and soft, around 10 minutes. Add the ginger and garlic and saute until fragrant, a minute or two.
  2. Then add the turmeric and fresh chilies. Add the roasted coconut milk (if using, otherwise, add a total of 500 ml regular coconut milk) and season to taste.
  3. For a smoother sauce, blend using a hand held stick blender. This is optional.
  4. Lastly, add the spanner crabs and cook for around 7 to 10 minutes until the crab meat is cooked through.
