Schezwan Crab

As I mentioned earlier in my posts that I love Crabs. Whenever I find some fresh crabs in the fish stalls, I never miss to buy it. Traditional dish Crab Masala is already in my blog. This was the first time I actually experimented with Crabs and that was Schezwan Crab and I am glad to say it turned out GREAT. Still I am drooling while writing this post. Its so simple and gets ready in minutes.

So here's a quick and mouth watering Chinese recipe- Schezwan Crab.

Red Chilli powder - 2 tsp

Dhania powder - 1 tsp

Salt to taste

Oil- 2-3 tsp

Onion - 1 big (chopped or paste)

Ginger- Garlic paste  - 2-3 tsp

Spring onions

Corn Flour - 1 tbsp

Tomato Sauce - 2 tsp

Soya Sauce or Chilli Vinegar - 2-3 tsp

Ajjinamotta - 1/4tsp

Chings Scezwan Sauce - 3 tsp


1. Clean the crab and keep aside.

2. Heat 2-3 tsp of vegetable oil in a pan. Add one onion finely chopped. Fry it till it turns translucent.

3. Add Ginger- garlic paste and saute it for a minute.

4. Add Cleaned Crabs and pour little water. Close the lid and allow it to cook for about 5- 6 mins in medium flame.

5. Now add red chilli powder,dhania powder, ajjinamotto and salt. Mix well and cook it till the crabs are almost cooked.
