Crab Masala

    Crab Masala is a delicious dish. This can be made spicy by adding more pepper. In case if you are making it spicy and most of the time it gonna be more spicy as we think. In that case, no worries, Just add some coconut milk when you are about to turn of the stove. Best combination is with chappati, appam and breads.
