         We bought live crab last week.

       1. First we boil water in a big pot

      2. Put the live crab in boiled water for 2 to 3 mins.

      3.Once the shell turns color..remove from hot water and cool it little time.

      4. First cut all the legs

      5. Turn the main body upside down  and show it under the running tap water.

      6. Running tap water will clean the bad black stuff from the body.

      7. The remaining white stuff is good to eat.

      8. Now cut the main body into 2 or 3 piceces.

      9. This Pieces are ready to make curry or gravy.

      Hope this will help.

    Wow………. We just make how you have given. The only thing is we dont use asafoetida powder (only while making muruku I have seen ppl using it). I remember chasing those crabs whn mom cleaning it. We hit it with “idukki”. Someone need to clean it for me if I am making… Cant wait to see how to clean it…
