These are perfect for a dinner party because everyone gets their own ramekin and you can make them ahead of time, then add cheese and brown them.
A long time family favourite. This recipe was handed down to me by my mother in law. There are several versions of Chilli crab recipes in Asia. This Malaysian version is sweet and savoury and the egg adds a beautiful texture. I have this for lunch or dinner and served with steamed rice and friends have been requesting for this recipe ever since.
