  1. Cook crabs by boiling or steaming. Let cool. Remove shells and set aside.
  2. Remove crab meat from the claws, legs, body, including fat from the shells. Set aside.
  3. Fry potatoes in oil until golden brown and set aside. In the same pan, saute onion and garlic until fragrant. Then add crab meat and season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix thoroughly.
  4. Add tomatoes and simmer 5 minutes. Add potatoes, red pepper and raisins. Mix well and simmer another 2 minutes.
