Thai Green Crab Curry

Each and every time I travel lust to Thailand, I make sure I return home, no, no, none of those Thai street stuffs, I actually return home by packing my mind with Thai cooking tips. Basically, I go all out by food venturing in Thailand. Don't forget the best food in Thailand can also be their street food (Tam Tim Krob/Red Rubbies, Spaghetti Tom Yam, Thai Eggplant, Thai SeabassThai Fried Chicken, Thai Laksa, Thai Massaman Curry & Thai Green Vegetable Curry). In fact, I feel as though I have food conquered Thailand at the back and in front of hands. I , trust me, I have sincerely been out there, I think I have pretty much covered the whole of Thailand. Of course, some of my travel ventures are not documented in this precious space of mine, those were before I even started Nava K and for the last five years or so, I did return to other parts of Thailand (Bangkok, Phuket & Chiang Mai). Thai food is definitely my kind of food (Tom Yum Soup Vegetarian, Thai Papaya Salad, Thai Prawn Spaghetti, Thai Carrot Soup, Thai Noodle Soup, Thai Steamed Fish & Thai Mee Hoon Salad). Speak about their big, bold and power mouth punching tastes please. Oh-so-yum. Literally anything and literally anywhere. Honestly, I have tucked into various array of Thai dishes, so much so I can consider myself as a self-made pro Thai home chef. Today, lemme roll out another. Thai Green Crab Curry (Thai Green Fish Curry & Thai Chicken Green Curry). Obviously, Green is the food theme, made with self-made Thai green curry paste and elevated for flavours and aroma alongside the must have Thai ingredients. Don't you agree this Thai Green Crab Curry is super mouthwatering? (Indian Crab Curry & Indian Crab Soup). 

For the crab
5 crabs - clean and cut into two
1/2 tbsp corn flour
1/2 tbsp rice flour
1 tsp turmeric powder
Salt to taste

**blend/pulse these ingredients with some water for a thick paste

Other ingredients
1 tbsp fish sauce
One piece palm sugar (or as needed)
Lime juice (as needed)
