Crab Masala Gravy

Crabs though look complicated to be cooked, the actual process is so simple as pictured here and once cooked its taste rules all the seafood.  If the crabs are live just immerse them in hot water and go ahead.Once cleaned, crabs can be cut into two halves first and its legs can also be separated. Crabs can be cooked as a whole also, but I personally felt that the spices were not getting in and the gravy was alag ya was aloof from that of crab. So I just wished to have them cut off.
