Singapore Chilli Crabs

This is one of the most delicious ways to cook crabs.

2 crabs (in this case, I used 200 g cracked claws)
1 red onion chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
6 fresh red chillies
5 cm piece of ginger sliced
2 tomatoes quartered
1.5 cups tomato sauce
2 tbs brown sugar
1 tsp dark soya sauce
1 tsp shaoxing wine
1 tbs sweet chilli sauce
1 tbs white vinegar
1 cup water
salt and pepper to season

1. Heat oil and fry onions, garlic and ginger.
2. Add chillies and tomatoes and stir. Add water and all the seasonings to a thick sauce. Then add crabs.
3. Cook crabs for 25 mins in the sauce
4. Serve with bread rolls to soak up sauce or you can look up the recipe of Chinese mantou buns which go superbly with the dish.
