Kurle Gashi (Crab in coconut gravy)



This is a konkani dish for non veg lovers. Simple yet delicious and lip smacking. My daughter is a great crab fan and me too. My hubby doesn't have the patience to work on the peeling of crab shells and eat it. So we just buy a little just to satisfy our taste buds.

Ingredients:
Crab - 10
grated coconut - 1 cup
dry red chillies - 6
tamarind - lemon size ball
Onions - 1 medium
salt to taste

Clean and wash the crabs. If the crabs are too big cut them into two. Crush the legs lightly(hammer or pestle) to ensure ease while eating.
Blend coconut, red chillies and tamarind to smooth paste.
Take this masala in a pan/kulle(mud pot). Add salt and get to a boil. Now add crab pieces and chopped onions and cook till the crabs are cooked.


Just before putting off the flame add a tsp of coconut oil and cover with the lid. Kurle gashi is ready to be served with boiled rice or white rice.
