1 kg crab claws
2 medium size red onions or about 10 shallots
1 inch ginger
6 cloves garlic
About 5 dry red chillies or 1.5 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp cooking oil
(the amount of spices you will use depends on how spicy you'd like the dish to be, the above spice quantities would make this dish 'quite spicy')
claws well and crack the hard shells (to let the spices in while cooking), keep aside.
Slice onions fine, keep aside. Also make a paste of garlic, ginger and chillies and keep aside.
In a wide non-stick vessel, pour the cooking oil and fry onions till they begin to sweat, add the garlic/ginger/chilli paste the turmeric and continue to fry for about 3-4 minutes.
Add the crab claws and fry some more on a full flame. Add the soy sauce after about 3 minutes of frying, mix again, then cover and let it cook for about 10 minutes.
