Crab masala

To garnish

Heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Once hot, add the cinnamon, cloves and cardamom and sauté for 30 seconds. Add the chopped onions and sauté until golden brown, stirring well
Add the ginger-garlic paste and powdered spices to the pan. Sauté for a further 5 minutes, stirring well to ensure the mixture doesn't catch, then add the chopped tomatoes and a little water. Cover the pan and leave to simmer on a gentle heat for 20 minutes, or until the oil separates and rises to the top of the sauce
Add the salt and more water, then stir in the crab pieces and cover the pan. Allow to simmer over gentle heat for a further 10 minutes, adding a little more water after 5 minutes
To serve, check the seasoning and garnish with the peppercorns and fresh coriander (if desired)
