Mash the smaller legs in a mixer and filter out the liquid. We will use it later to enhance the gravy taste. Shallow fry the onions and grated coconut on a low flame till golden brown. Mash it in a mixer with minimum water. Set aside.

Add oil to the pan and fry the onion on low heat till golden brown. Add half of the chopped onion and stir. Add 2 tsp of turmeric, 4 tsp of Malvani masala and continue stirring for about a minute.

Add the crabs and stir till the oil separates. Add salt as per taste, preferably lower quantity than usual as any shell fish is already a bit salty.

Add a little quantity of water. Cover and cook the crabs for about 5-6 minutes. Add the pre-filtered crab legs(smaller) water to this mixture and stir.

Add the fried and mashed coconut/onion mixture and continue stirring. Cover and cook for 5 mins. Garnish with coriander and serve.
