Cook Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes


  • 2-4 mud crabs
  • 1 large diced onion
  • 2 teaspoons chilli powder ( or 2 small red chillies)
  • 2-3 Tablespoons vegetable oil.
  • 2-4 Tablespoons minced garlic ( 2-3 cloves)
  • 1/4 cup Hoisin sauce
  • 1/3cup tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon ginger paste
  • 2 teaspoons coriander ( or use fresh)
  • 1/4 cup sweet chilli sauce
  • 4 chopped ripe tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2-3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • Salt and pepper.
  • Cornflour to thicken if needed.


  • Pure the onion , oil and chilli together. Fry off until onion is clear.
  • Place all ingredients in your cooker and allow to cook on high 2 hours so all the flavours are blended well. At this point add extra of whatever it needs , I don't though , but you may want more sugar or chilli etc.. Crack the mud crab claws and cut the main bodies in half . Add to the cooker and cook on high until they turn orange. ( you can boil the crabs and then crack them and add to the cooker , cook on high around 1-1 1/2 hours so the flavour of the crabs goes through the soup).
  • ##### New wave users, use the browning button for the onion , chilli and oil. Then switch to soup and cook with airtight on 25 mins. Add the mud crab pre cooked and cracked and then re heat when ready.( I pre cooked the crab so it wouldn't scratch the bowl ).
