A great curry! I followed the recipe to the letter, most of my meals are curry, this one was spot on.
I'm Sri Lankan, this curry is as authentic as they come. If you don't have canned tomato you can sustitute chopped fresh tomato instead.
Fabulous recipe!! Excellent. I only alter it by reducing the cayenne a bit. This is defiantly a family favorite. Thanks for sharing it.
Perfection. I am a 20 year plus cook of Indian and Sri Lankan
food and this recipe is superb. Since I used a very inexpensive
beef cut, I did marinate the 3lbs of beef with 1/2 cup of
dry red wine, a couple cloves of garlic diced and salt and pepper.
I covered and placed in refrigerator for approx 3 hours. You may
not ned to do this but Wow what a curry. I bought my curry powder roasted from my neighborhood Indian supply shop and served with a high quality basmati rice. I live in Australia and we are blessed with fantastic spice shops, not sure how you would go in a small U.S mid-western town for supplies.
Try this recipe if you can, you will be delighted.
This curry was amazing! I let it cook a little longer to soften the beef a little more. The flavours as written are so good. Thanks for the recipe!
Delicious and authentic!
This is a great easy recipe. The only thing I couldn't find was the pandan leaf but it was great without it.
now i'm looking for more sri lankan recipes
