Easy Chili Crab



Who does not like a good finger lickin Chili Crab on a bed of hot steaming rice...or soft fluffy bread to scoop up that tasty sauce.

Fresh crab is a must for a a good chili crab dish, and thankfully there are plenty here in sunny Queensland. Alhamdulillah.

This recipe was handed down to me by my mother in law....I feel very lucky that both my mother and MIL are great cooks.  I figured the best way to keep hubby happy is to know how to cook his fave dish from the best person that know how!

  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 6 fresh red chillies (deseeded)
