Clean crabs and split or cut into pieces. See picture below. Heat up cooking oil in a pot and add indian spices (see pix – name coming soon),  onions, tomatoes, salt, garlic, chilly,  and stir so spices don’t burn. Keep stirring until the mixture is “almost” burnt. This is key so that the flavor in the spices is released by the heat. Add 2 cups of water to stop mixture from burning and add crabs.
