After that remove from heat (if you like crab with shell skip this step) remove the shell.
Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan, add the onions, fry them till it becomes translucent.
Now add the pressed garlic, little salt and the above ground masala and mix it well.

Let them cook  for about 4-5 minutes in medium heat with lid covered.
When the masala smell goes off, add the crab meat (removed from shell) gently mix it with the masalas and add water to your liking for gravy consistency (about 1/2 cup) or you can just make it dry. Finally add a tbsp of oil on top of  it.

Chicken pulav

Chicken pulav

Clean the chicken pieces, rub salt and chili powder to the pieces and marinate for at least 30 minutes. Can marinate it for 1-2 hours but no marination is also fine with this recipe. Since I am a marination freak, I marinated the chicken pieces for ½ hour.
Wash rice and soak it in water.
In a wide pan, heat ¾ cups of oil, fry the onions until golden brown, add ginger garlic paste and sauté until raw smell of the ginger garlic paste is gone.
Add green chilies, coriander powder, turmeric and stir so that all the spices are mixed well.
Add tomatoes, give it a good stir, cover and cook until tomatoes are tender and mushy. About 2-3 minutes.
Remove the cover, stir the curry mixture well, add chicken pieces and garam masala. Mix well, cover and cook until chicken is tender. This should take about 8-10 minutes. Remove the cover and cook until most of the liquid is evaporated.

Shevai

Shevai

Ingredients

Rice – 3 cups
Boiled rice (Red/White) – 1 cup
Grated coconut – 1.5 cups
Salt to taste

Method

Soak the rice (both the types) for about 4 hours
Now grind the rice with the grated coconut to a smooth paste (like dosa batter)
Steam this batter in little moulds like idlis. Infact, it can be cooked exactly like idlis.
Now grease the shevai-press and press the shevai when the batter is hot. If the batter gets cold, it becomes very hard to press.

This shevai is usually eaten with chutney or mango pickles. In this case, coconut oil is added to the shevai. If you have a sweet-tooth, shevai can also be had with goDa – rossu.
