Sweet and Sour Crab (Kepiting Asam Manis)

I have been cooking so many dishes with crabs! But then I wanted to try something new and since I cooked Sweet and Sour Prawn, then I tempted to cook sweet and sour Crab! It sounds the same! Sweet and Sour. But we will use slightly different ingredients.

I was afraid if it didn’t come out well, but surprisingly, my family love it so much! Especially my husband and my friend who joined us for dinner on that time!

So why don’t you try it!
