I love crab but only difficulty is in eating it.. we have to mess up both our hands to eat it. whenever my dad used to bring crab at home mom would prepare excellent crab gravy and dad used to take that cooked crab and give me n my sis the cooked flesh n we used to eat nicely. so when i go to my home i enjoy eating n now my hubby does my fathers job by giving good portion of crab to me. so here's my mom's crab chilli recipe for u guys.
