Recipe (Serves 2):
Blue crab - 2 nos (1 lb)
Green chilli (Serranos) - 1, sliced lengthwise
Onion - 1/2, chopped
Ginger - 1" piece, sliced thin
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Kudampuli (Camboge) - 1, cut into pieces
Clean and cook the crab for a few minutes with the shell on.
Cut the crab in half.
Saute the ginger, chillies and onion in oil in a saute pan or fish curry pot.
Add the red chilli powder and turmeric powder, saute well.
Toss in the crab halves.
Pour some water in, just enough to cover the crab partially.
Season with salt.
Close the pan with a lid and cook until the water is evaporated and the masala coats the crab.
Serve hot with rice.
- I still am not an expert in cleaning the crab, so check out the experiences from others on how to clean it.
Hope you enjoyed reading my post. Wishing you all a great day and an awesome week ahead!!

The package of pasta arrived promptly after my acknowledgement of the offer. The package of agnolotti can be refrigerated or frozen. If frozen, the product doesnt have to be thawed, we just have to follow the cooking instructions. I kept mine in the refrigerator.
I prepared them following the package instructions. A couple of the stuffed agnolottis broke while cooking. For the pictures, I have presented the cooked pasta as such, with a drizzle of oil and a sprinkling of oregano. I was plesantly surprised by the delicious and delicate flavor of the agnolotti. The pasta was cooked to perfection and the stuffing was delicious. The texture of the filling was amazing. I could taste the cheeses and the mushrooms. I really enjoyed my share and they are amazing just on their own, without any sauces. I would have loved it even more if there was a bit more of the stuffing in the pasta. Nevertheless, I have no trouble giving it 5 stars for taste and ease of preparation!!
