  1. Cut and wash the crabs thoroughly. In this dish, I have used the flesh with the cover portion and the claws , have discarded the hard outer cover and the legs of the crab.
  2. Keep the white mustard seeds soaked in 1/4 cup of water for about 15 to 20 minutes. Blend it well to a fine paste.
  3. Now, in a large non stick skillet, heat oil and add 1 tsp mustard seeds , when it starts to sputter, add the slit green chilies and turmeric powder and fry for a min or so , next add 2 cups of water.
  4. When it starts to boil, add the white mustard seeds paste , add salt and let cook for 2 minutes .
  5. Next add the crabs, cover and cook on medium heat, once the crabs are almost cooked, add the lemon juice at the end and let simmer for another 2 to 3 minutes.
  6. Serve hot with rice.
