I think I was expecting something like Annacia's picture... but mine didn't turn out :( I halved the recipe since it was only DH and I for lunch, using two small shallots, a homemade curry powder Hot Madras Curry Powder, sea salt in place of salt, only 12oz of crabmeat instead of 16oz and one 14.5oz can of diced tomatoes. I cooked as directed but I had no juice in my stew - maybe I should have added water? We did enjoy the spiciness of the curry and crushed red pepper flakes. Made for ZWT4 Spice it up challenge.
Spicy but very good - I used Crab Delights but if I ever find real crabmeat on sale I'll try it with that! This was our main dish for "African Menu Night" in our culinary world tour, 2008.
A wonderful dish. Simple to make and delicious to eat. I used imitation crab, fresh crab isn't available here and I couldn't afford it if it was. It's spicy even though I just sprinkled a few pepper flakes in. I loved it and I'll be making it again soon. Thanks to Nicks Mom for this oh so good treat.
