Put everything except the crab in a food processor — Make sure you take all the seeds from the tamarinds out before you put in the blender. Blend to combine well, adding the crab near the end, then put it in a big bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of nam pla and 2 tablespoons of sugar. Then taste it see if you like it — If not you can add more fish sauce or sugar.
