Sri Lankan crab curry
- August 2004

- Hands on time 40 mins, plus crab preparation
This rich, exotic crab curry is one of the triumphs of Sri Lankan cuisine. In Sri Lanka, this dish would be accompanied by a large mound of rice, plus 1 or 2 vegetable dishes and pickles.
For a lighter way to showcase crab, try this herb and chilli crab salad.

Crab and chillies are made for each other. Sri Lankans are very proud of the crabs caught off their coast and this curry is a national dish. Traditionally, the crabs would be simmered in their shells but this version is easier to make at home. Leaving the claws intact still gives diners the pleasure of attacking some of the meal with nutcrackers or you can use the end of a rolling pin.
