How to Make Steamed Crab with Tomato and Daal Rasam

  • Set the crabs inside a pan and wash the crabs by steaming them in an oven, or inside a steam pot, until the water comes to a boil.
  • Wash and drain the toor dal properly, before cooking it inside a vessel with water. Keep cooking until soft, and then mash the daal with a ladle.
  • Take out some oil inside a non-stick pan and add cumin seeds inside it. When cumin seeds crackle, add chopped garlic, ginger and green chili. Sauté for about a minute.
  • Now, add salt, black pepper, chopped tomato and rasam powder to the pan.
  • Add some water to create a tomato masala, simmer for a while.
  • Add daal water inside the pan and simmer.
  • Pour desi ghee in a pan and mix mustard deeds, curry leaves, asafetida and urad dal inside it.
  • Finish the rasam dal with some chopped coriander.
  • Serve the steamed crab and tomato rasam now.
