One of my favorite food, while I was in Sri Lanka last year, was the Sri Lankan Crab Curry and here is a recipe that I got from a local while I was there. Spicy and full of flavor it is turning out to be the favorite way to eat crabs in our household.
Last year this day I was in Sri Lanka on a solo trip. It wasn’t my first solo trip, but it was probably the best. One of the warmest country I visited with the best food ever. I ate a lot while I was in Sri Lanka would be an understatement. And while many things won my heart, the Sri Lankan Crab Curry made a firm place there.
One of the reasons for this could be the fact that Sri Lankan mud crabs are really the best. I haven’t tasted such sweet tasting crabs ever before and after that honestly. So ideally I should have left this taste behind in Sri Lanka but then heart and mind always don’t talk the same language. So I bugged my tuktuk driver’s wife for the recipe of Sri Lankan crab curry while I cooked with her.
I have come back and made it multiple times, of course the crabs aren’t as tasty but the curry is so damn comforting. It reminds me of Sri Lanka in the warmest possible way. With all the pictures of Sri Lanka coming up in my timehop and FB memories, I thought sharing of this Sri Lankan Crab Curry on the blog was apt right now. Because if I cannot go visit that country right now, at least I can share it’s food with you all.
