Today I would like to share another non-vegetarian dish which is called as Crab Masala. It is very tasty dish that contains attractive smell. This is completely a variety non-vegetarian dish and it is very spicy dish. Still I haven't shared any crab dishes so I am very happy to introduce a new tasty non-vegetarian dish to all. You can make it in different ways by adding masala powders based on your taste. Crab Masala also a highly demanded dish in hotels like other non-vegetarian dishes. Crab is very tasty so every dish of Crab also will be very good and tasty. Someone is using Crab dishes only from outside due to the lack of knowledge of preparation. We have to spend time to clean it well and usually making dishes by Crabs without cutting. But I don't like to eat Crab like that so I have cut it as pieces to make this dish. It can easily cook if we cut it as pieces and masala also will come inside of the crab very easily. You can use it with anything which you prefer. I like to have this as the side dish with Chapati for dinner. It has thick gravy and better to use hotly. This is completely Kerala style traditional Crab Masala so I used pure Coconut Oil and Coconut Milk to this dish. It has a little bit sour taste and the mixed smell and taste of Cumin Seeds powder and Fennel Seeds Powder.

This is the famous dish for different celebrations or festivals such as Christmas, Easter, birthdays, weddings or any other special celebrations. We can serve ghee rice with vegetarians and non-vegetarians dishes. This is very easy to prepare at home. The main ingredients of ghee rice are Basmati rice and ghee. I have used cardamom powder, cloves, Cinnamon stick and kiss miss to get good taste and good flavour. These all are optional ingredients and we can add based on our preferences. Ghee is not good for cholesterol so we need to use less quantity of ghee to prepare. Taste will not change if we use less quantity of ghee. Mainly this dish is serving for lunch and dinner.

Fish molly is also known as fish stew. It has different name in different places. We can write it as fish molee. It is completely a traditional tasty curry. I can say that it is entirely different from other fish curries because its colour and method of preparation is completely different from others. It can make it by using any type of fishes.
