Chilli Crabs

Chilli Crabs

Description:
A seafood dish originating from Singapore, chilli crabs consist of hard-shell crabs cooked in a thick gravy with a tomato chilli base. A perennial favourite among Singaporeans, sink your teeth into the succulent flesh of the crabs and experience the spicy yet surprisingly sweet flavour dancing around your taste buds. One of the main attraction of this dish lies in the sauce for the chilli crabs. Semi-thick, sweet and savoury, it is thickened with thickening flour and flavoured with garlic, vinegar and soya sauce. Beaten eggs are also usually added to create 'egg ribbons' within the sauce.

Trivial:
Chilli crabs are often served with bread that customers can use to mop up the sauce. These breads could be steamed or fried mantous (Chinese buns), french loaves and toasted sliced bread. Also, the shells of the crabs are usually partially cracked before cooking so that it'll be easier for patrons to eat later.
