Butter garlic crab

A buttery, rich, sweet dip brimming with crab meat is the ultimate indulgence, and this recipe from Will Bowlby is ready in as little as 10 minutes.

Will says: ‘If you ever visit Mumbai as a tourist, one of the first restaurants that is always recommended is a place called Trishna in Kala Ghoda – its fame carried on this one dish alone. The buttery-sweet crab makes this indulgent dish hard to resist and I have also used a little brown crab meat, for added flavour. The papads (dusted with blitzed seaweed) are the perfect vehicle for scooping up all that delicious crab meat – this is definitely one to try out at home! You can also serve this with freshly baked bread, to mop up all the juices.’
