Did you grind garlic with the onions?  How ever the adding of grounded juice(!)  is a great idea.  By the way Malvani Masala   Not available in south  I think you can help us to make this powder at home.

Excellent presentation of the recipe and clear instructions. Crabs do not take more than 3 – 4 minutes to cook but it takes a much longer time to crack and eat them.
