Food Trip Friday: Khmer Crab Curry
I was craving for seafood the other day but I don’t how to buy crabs/lobsters here in Phnom Penh. I guess my mother-in-law heard that and the next day my nephew brought me a huge plastic filled with crabs (Ma even fixed it and chopped it to bite size pieces) and also some curry powder and translated to English instructions on how to cook it. I’m lucky, really really lucky my mother-in-law pampers me a lot!
She knows enough that I don’t like pounding too many spices etc, so she bought packets of curry powder so cooking the crabs would be easy for me. And here’s the results..It was yummy and I added some chili. Let’s just say, during lunch time it was ‘galit galit‘ muna..
Just a bit of tidbit.. Cambodians love curry. They have different curries, some eaten with noodles, some with bread or rice. The difference between Thai/Indian and Khmer curries is that Cambodian’s prefer their curries to be a little less spicy, with more subtle flavors. All in all perfectly balanced..
