Goan Crab Sukkem

Goan Crab Sukkem

My mummy makes this crab preparation with zero oil. A few ingredients steamed in their own juices create a dish so awesome that is basic and retains all flavours of the crabs intermingling with the spiciness of the chillies and sweetness of the onions. Succulent! You definitely need to try out this Goan Crab Sukkem
