Remove the crab legs and set them aside. Remove the claws from the legs so that each leg is divided into two parts.
Cut the crab bodies into halves or quarters with a cleaver.
Set a deep, heavy-bottomed pan over a medium flame, and when the pan is hot, add the cooking oil and heat the oil. here I am using coconut oil.
Add in the spices followed by cumin seed, mustard seeds, peppercorns, green chilies and ginger garlic paste once the spices get crackled add onions&tomatoes
Add all of the spices and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or till the raw smell of the spices disappear and turn off the flame. let it cool
Now add the gravy and the grated coconut into your food processor and grind the mixture well to make a smooth paste (also called masala).
In the same pan add the cardamom, cloves, and the masala paste to the oil and saute for five minutes. Stir frequently to prevent burning.
Add 3 cups of hot water — more or less if you would like more or less gravy — and bring the gravy to a boil. Reduce the flame to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Add salt to taste.
Gently add the pieces of crab to the gravy and cook uncovered for 10 more minutes.
Turn off the fire and serve immediately with plain boiled rice or jeera rice.
