This is a great Thai crab dish known as 'Pu pad pong gari'. The crabs are quartered then cooked in a yellow curry sauce.


Serves: 5 

  • 1kg fresh whole crab, about 5 medium sized crabs
  • oil, for stir frying
  • 3 tablespoons yellow curry powder
  • 1/4 cup yellow bean paste
  • 1 handful Chinese celery, diced
  • 1 handful spring onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoons ginger, crushed
  • 3 eggs, whisked

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Prepare the crab by removing the main shell. Cut the crabs into quarters.
  2. In a wok fry the yellow curry powder until fragrant. Add the yellow bean paste and heat.
  3. Add the eggs and cook slightly. Add the Chinese celery, spring onion and ginger. When the eggs are almost cooked but still wet, add the crab, cover and continue to cook until the crab is done; about 5 minutes. You may need to add a slight amount of water to prevent scorching and induce steaming.
  4. When the crab is cooked lay out the contents of the wok on a platter and serve.
