    This sweet sour crabs were so delicious, we ate it with toasted bread, so yummy :) But the sauce seems not enough for us, next time I'll double up the sauce. I used grated garlic and ginger, cause I wanted the gravy to be smooth, I don't like to bite the chopped garlic and ginger.


    • 4 crabs about 1.5kg
    • Oil for deep frying
    • some cornflour
    • 11/2 tbsp grated garlic
    • 11/2 tbsp grated ginger
    • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
    • Sauce:
    • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
    • 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
    • 6 tbsp tomato sauce
    • 3 tbsp chilli sauce
    • 4 tbsp sugar
    • 1 tbsp white vinegar
    • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste


    1. Put the live crab into a plastic bag, tie up the bag, then put in freezer.
    2. Freeze it for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
    3. Take out and wash clean the crabs.
    4. Put all the cleaned crabs into colander, let the water drips off.
    5. Heat a wok with oil,toss the crabs with some cornflour.
    6. Deep fry the crabs, until they turn red, and cooked. Dish and drain.
    7. Leave about 2 tbsp oil in a wok, stir-fry grated ginger and garlic until aromatic.
    8. Add in the sauce, let the sauce boils, then add in the fried crabs.
