Crab green curry Maharashtrian style

This is a Maharashtrian dish that I had in Koli festivals and fancied making. It is cooked in a green paste that contains coriander leaves, green chilies, and freshly grated coconut apart from the Maharashtrian garam masala which is composed of a variety of whole spices. The dish has strong flavors and apart from crab, you can cook prawns as well as fishes in these spices.
