1. Clean the crab, cut it into small pieces and keep aside. 
2. Take a skillet and heat some oil in it. Now fry all the ingredients from batch-1.
3. Once the aroma starts coming, remove it from fire and let it cool. After it cools, grind everything together with some water to form a very fine paste and keep aside. 
4. Now take a clay pot or deep vessel, heat some oil, splutter mustard, fenugreek seeds and curry leaves. 
5. Now add the tamarind juice, chilly powder, corriander powder, turmeric powder, salt, asafoetida along with the ground masala and bring it to a boil. Add water if you want more gravy.
6. Add the crab pieces, cover and cook for 10 minutes on low-medium flame. The crab is done when it turns red in colour.
7. Garnish with fresh curry leaves, cilantro and split green chilly and serve hot. 
     - If you want a thick gravy, do not add extra water. Keep the flame on medium high and let the gravy cook till most of the water evaporates.
