Chilli Crab

11:45 AM

My husband and I love Chilli Crab very much. Every time we went back to our hometown at Kota Tinggi, we never missed to go to Teluk Sengat Seafood Restaurant to ‘pekena’ the Chilli Crab. The taste was marvellous and the price was reasonable. We remember having nasi putih, siakap sweet sour, kangkung belacan, butter prawn, chilli crab and Chinese tea only at RM 70++. Cheap I can say, comparing the price at Klang Valley (which I always complained the taste is not up to my expectation).

Here you are. Since dah few months we all tak balik kampung, I tried to prepare the chilli crab myself. Searching the recipe through the net, I manage to prepare the Chilli Crab.
