Fried Crabs

Crispy Fried Crabs

If you have had deep fried prawns with the shell on, you will relate to me when I say that the fried crabs taste simply yummy. Simple to make and serve as a snack/appetiser or as a side when eating a xitt-kodi (Goan for rice & curry).

Serves: 2 to 4 Persons

Prep. Time: 10 Mins. + marination

Cooking Time: 20 Mins.


  • Sea Crabs (cleaned) – 4 big sized (about 600 gms with the shell)

    • Red Chilly Powder – 1 tbsp.
    • Turmeric Powder – ½ tsp.
    • Black Pepper (coarsely ground) – ½ tsp.

    • Juice of 1 big lime.
    • Salt – ¼ tsp. or to taste
