Cha Kdam is a Cambodian stir fried crab dish that is popular throughout Southeast Asia but is surprisingly easily to reproduce in your own kitchen. A lot of people are intimidated by the idea of cooking crab because they think it's difficult, but this dish proves otherwise.

Start by cutting your crab into pieces and setting aside. Heat up your wok and add oil and sugar for caramelization before adding garlic followed by the crab. Add water and boil. Once the crab is halfway cooked, add a jar of crab paste before throwing in onions and bell pepper. At this point all you have to do is season to taste before cooking for another five to eight minutes.

This Cambodian stir fried crab dish is best enjoyed with warm rice and eaten with your fingers for a deliciously messy experience.
