"This is one of my very favourite curries, and one I like to cook for any occasion worth celebrating," says Carey. "It's relatively simple to make yet it has a complex flavour and also looks very impressive. It's hot, spicy, messy and requires you to get involved." Start this recipe a day ahead to marinate the crab.
Note Sri Lankan curry powder is available from Herbies Spices, and Sri Lankan or Indian food shops. Tamarind extract is available from Asian food shops. If a very large saucepan is unavailable, cook crab in two large saucepans.
