Are you a seafood lover? Then, Lobster has to be one of your many favorites. When I bring live lobsters home for dinner, my kitchen turns into a chaotic rampage. Holding the live lobster (although their sharp claws are clamped with thick rubber bands, they move their tails violently) from the grocery bag and putting them into a pot of boiling water is something very amusing to watch. My husband and I dance and scream each holding a very long tongs and pot lids (serving as a shield) till the lobsters seem dead and the war is won.
Put the live lobsters head first into a pot of boiling water with some ginger added to it. Cover it with a lid. After about 8-10 minutes the lobster is cooked and all red. Drain the water with lobsters onto kitchen sink. Tear apart the parts, wash and clean the insides.
Heat oil in a wok, fry the lobsters with salt and turmeric. This is the base. Now you can make it in any way you like, be it a curry with ginger, garlic, onions and cumin paste or rub it with mustard paste and fry cook till done.
