Salted Egg Crab aka. Ketam telur masin

Alhamdulillah... i am back. Yup. True. Have not been posted any updates for quite sometime... no reasons. It is just because ....

However, i am currently feeling at the top when i managed to successfully prepare the much likeable (at least by us) The Salted Egg Crab. First tried the dish at Adam Lai in  Shah Alam and we immediately fell in love with the taste. But... as we aware, eating crab at a restaurant does not gives us the pleasure of sucking everything to the last bit which makes us think twice to order it again. Able to cook it at home satisfies me.... 

My Salted Egg Crab

Enough with the crap, now back to the recipe.

Thanks to net technology, the recipe is found through various cooking blogs.. thanks to all.

(I) 2 crabs - halved and cleaned
Corn starch
Salt and pepper
Frying oil
We begin preparing the crab. Coat the crab with the corn starch, salt and pepper. The fry to cook. Cooled.

2 salted egg
Boiled. Use 3 yolks and half whole egg. Mashed.

3 cloves of garlic - crushed
2 stalks of curry leaves - only the leaves
About 5 to 6 hot chillies
About 2 to 3 table spoon fresh milk
Pinch of sugar and salt (if need to)
Butter for cooking

Melt the butter. Don't let it brown.
Add the garlic, chillies and curry leaves. Fry till fragrant.
Add the mashed salted egg. Fry till mixed.
Add the milk. Let it cook. You know its ready when it starts to bubble.
Finally add your crab. Mix well. Ready to serve.

Try it. It's doable. Home cooked meal is always the best.
