1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cup warm water
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 pound crab meat
3/4 cup fresh white breadcrumbs
4 large egg whites, divided
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
salt and pepper, to taste
all-purpose flour, for dredging
vegetable oil, for deep frying


1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon chutney


Mix the first five ingredients in a medium bowl to blend. Let the batter stand for 1 hour at room temperature.

Mix the crab meat, bread crumbs, two of the egg whites and the parsley in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Divide the mixture into equal-sized mounds. Press each mound firmly into a ball. Roll each crab meat ball in flour; shake off excess. Immediately before frying, beat the remaining egg whites in a small bowl to stiff peaks. Fold the egg whites into the batter.

Heat the oil in a deep fryer or heavy saucepan to 360 degrees F. Dip the crab balls, one at a time, into the batter, coating completely. Carefully lower into the oil. Repeat with the remaining crab balls, cooking until pale and golden brown, about 5 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the fritters to paper towels and drain. Serve with Curry Sauce.

NOTES: Do not overcrowd the fryer or saucepan when making these crab fritters. Make no more than 5 fritters at a time. Be certain to slide the fritters gently into the hot oil. Dropping them into the oil can can cause a dangerous splash. Turn the fritters frequently as they fry, making sure that all sides are browned.

For Curry Sauce: Heat the oil in a small heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute. Add the curry powder and stir for 1 minute. Transfer the mixture to a blender. Add all of the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour into a bowl.
