Directions

90 min.
1. Step

For the sour sauce, in a saucepan, add the sugar, vinegar, water, fish sauce, Shaoxing wine, finely chopped garlic cloves, and crushed chillies. Place the saucepan over medium-high heat, bring to a boil, and boil for 8 minutes.

2. Step

Mix in the thickener and add it to the saucepan a little at a time, until it has the desired consistency. Store in a jar and refrigerate indefinitely.

3. Step

Clean and butcher the crab.

4. Step

Prepare the rempah by adding into the bowl of a food processor the chopped fresh chillies, chopped garlic cloves, chopped shallots, chopped ginger, fermented soya and prawn paste. Add a splash of water and mash until it forms a smooth paste.

5. Step

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, add plenty of sunflower oil, then the rempah. Stir-fry for 5 minutes, until deeply caramelised and very aromatic.

6. Step

Add the crushed tomato and stir-fry for a further 5 minutes.

7. Step

Add the crab head coral and stir-fry for 1 minute.

8. Step

Add the sour sauce, stock and chopped crab. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium and cover the pan for 8 minutes.

9. Step

Uncover the pan and remove the crab. Beat an egg and stir it into the sauce.

10. Step

Season with salt, vinegar and sugar. Serve immediately and finish with plenty of fresh coriander. Enjoy!
