  • I prefer to break the crab into the body and leg for the ease of cooking and serving.
  • Turmeric powder is optional however it has anti-allergic properties and hence I use a pinch of it to avoid allergy.
  • Boiling Crab with salt and turmeric powder is optional however this process is advisable to follow to avoid allergy.
  • Both Garlic powder and parsley are optional however enhance the flavors if added.
  • You may skip Cream and substitute it with soy milk or almond milk for a dairy-free version.
  • You may substitute Chicken Stock with Vegetable stock or water. I prefer to use homemade Chicken Stock.
  • Adjust spices such as black pepper or green chili according to taste.
