Crunchy Crabs ( Bpu Choop Bang Tod )


This is one of the ways we eat small crabs in Thailand - deep fried in batter as a crunchy snack served with chilli sauce. The shell of small crabs is very thin and easily eaten, and not suprisingly it has plenty of calcium.

200 gms Small Sea Crab
2 Tablespoons Corn Flour
1 Egg
2 Tablespoons Light Soy Sauce
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper
Oil for Deep Frying

1. Mix the corn flour with the egg, salt, light soy sauce and black pepper.
2. Clean the crabs and put into the flour batter.
3. Heat oil to 190 degrees Celsius, add the crabs and fry for 5-7 minutes until golden brown.
4. Remove and drain on kitchen paper.

Serve With
Sweet Chilli Sauce
