Crab masala

To garnish

1
Heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Once hot, add the cinnamon, cloves and cardamom and sauté for 30 seconds. Add the chopped onions and sauté until golden brown, stirring well
2
Add the ginger-garlic paste and powdered spices to the pan. Sauté for a further 5 minutes, stirring well to ensure the mixture doesn't catch, then add the chopped tomatoes and a little water. Cover the pan and leave to simmer on a gentle heat for 20 minutes, or until the oil separates and rises to the top of the sauce
3
Add the salt and more water, then stir in the crab pieces and cover the pan. Allow to simmer over gentle heat for a further 10 minutes, adding a little more water after 5 minutes
4
To serve, check the seasoning and garnish with the peppercorns and fresh coriander (if desired)
