Crab Curry Side-Green Beans Poriyal

Our family friends and us celebrate the Fourth of July weekend with making Crab Curry. While I wasn’t there when the crab curry was made, I did get the chance to observe one of the Aunties make a vegetable dish. I didn’t eat the crab curry as I do not like seafood but everyone said it was delicious. Here is a link to how the crab curry was made http://www.jefreena.com/2015/07/moms-crab-curry/. From what I heard and you will read it was a real long process since the crabs kept absorbing the curry sauce.

Green Beans Poriyal
