FULL VIDEO ON YOUTUBE:
Hey guys, you have seen my video 'how to clean crabs before cooking'. Here is the real treat. Crab Sukka Mangalorean style, which I have grown up eating. Please try it and please don't forget to comment, like, share and SUBSCRIBE to my channel Curry for the Soul on YouTube for more such easy and delicious recipes.
Crab Sukka is a delicacy from Mangalore, a coastal city in Karnataka. Fresh crabs are cooked with the freshly dry roasted spices like coriander, cumin, pepper, cinnamon, cloves dry Kashmiri red chillies and coconut which adds a real depth of flavour and pairs perfectly with the sweetness of the crab meat.
As there are plenty of coconut trees in every house in Mangalore, fresh coconut and coconut oil is used for all the dishes. I am proud to say that the coconut oil is considered the best oil for health and especially to prevent cancer and weight gain.
Please give it a try and I am sure you will love it. This dish is a real treat for kids.
