In our house we love an Indian curry and are always looking for interesting and new recipes. This Sri Lankan recipe was the first time we have made a curry from scratch and it was simply delicious.
Being our first time we didn’t have all the ingredients of the traditional recipe so had to improvise. Curry leaves were replaced with lime juice (from a bottle) and basil, ghee was replaced with butter, chilli powder was omitted because not everyone in our house likes hot spice and we didn’t have enough basmati rice so used brown rice. This was a microwave dish but I cooked it on the stove-top as I love the aroma. The recipe below is my take on this dish, add more chilli if you like it hot!
Whilst it looks like a lot of work, this is a quick and easy meal to enjoy during the week, just make sure you prep everything before you start cooking. Enjoy with rice and some poppadoms. My only warning make sure you stock up on the spices because you’re sure going to want to make it again!
