Thai Sweet & Spicy Basil Crab

This is a Thai recipe which is a little sweet and quiet spicy. The basil adds a fresh twist to the dish. And the combination of all these flavours with the crab is absolutely finger-licking good. I know that eating crab tends to be a little messy. But then, it’s a very caveman-like feeling of satisfaction when you use your fingers to tear apart and dog into the crab meat.

Prawn Balchão (Goan Spicy Prawn Pickle)

Everyone knows Prawn Balchão as a main course. It is actually more like a pickle! In the days prior to refrigeration, prawns (and sometimes pork) would be left to marinate in a vinegar-based sweet and sour tomato-chilli sauce. Here, the Balchão would be left for days to marinate without reheating.

Chapattis: Palak (Spinach)

Being made from whole wheat flour, Chapattis are a better health choice to have as a ‘bread’ than the commercial sliced breads. Often, it can be a little boring to have chapattis daily; and I recommend jazzing this humble dish up by adding vegetable pulps/juices when preparing the dough.
