My Sweet Sour Crab

My husband loves seafood very much and so do my children and lucky for us since seafood here is quite cheap. So seafood like fish, prawns and squid is a must in our daily menu. And some other time we'd like to have crab eventhough it's kinda messy when eating crabs. Usually there would be a lot of thumping and cracking at the dinner table. But despite of all the "adventures" and "obstacles" before we could taste the crab meat,we still love crabs. And here is a crab recipe that you can try.....My Sweet Sour Crab.

Ingredients :

1kg crab
5 shallots/ onions - chopped
2 garlic - chopped
a inch of ginger - finely slice
1 tsp turmeric
4 tbls tomato ketchup (sos tomato)
2 tbls chilly sauce
curshed dried shrimp (optional)
2 tbls sugar
salt to taste
1 egg - beaten
2 fresh tomatos
a cup of water

Method :

-mix together the crab,shallots, garlic, ginger ,turmeric and water in a bowl.

- put in a wok or cooking pot and cook with low heat until the crab is cooked through with the lid on for about 15 minutes

- add in the ketcup,chilly sauce ,dried shrimp,salt and sugar.

- and finally add in the beaten egg and fresh tomatos, mix everything together. Once you see the egg is cooked that means the crab is ready!
