Roasted crab with tamarind sauce

It is quite simple to cook the dish with the main ingredients of crab, tamarind, chili, salt and sugar. The dish is made in two steps:

Firstly, clean the crab and remove its carapace. Then separate the claws and cut the body into four pieces.  Use a pestle to slightly crack the claws to make the sauce adsorb easily into the crab meat. Fry the crab pieces in hot oil until they turn orange and put them on a plate.

Secondly, mix tamarind with warm water. Filter this liquid to remove the tamarind seeds. Add sugar, salt, seasoning and chili to make the sauce sweet and sour. Cook this sauce till it becomes thick.

Pour the sauce into the fried crab to make it stick around the crab pieces. Put the dish on a plate to keep the sweet, sour and hot taste of this special food.
