Have I told you that my favourite TV programs are all food related ??? Masterchef Australia, Top Chef, Food Safari, Ultimake Cake Off….the list is endless.. Everytime I am in front of the TV, one can find me watching something that’s related to food. One of the programs that truly inspires me is Food Safari. Each episode is dedicated to one cuisine..Today’s recipe is Sri Lankan Chicken Curry. Probably due to the proximity, there seems to be lot of similarity with South Indian style of cooking. When this recipe was being shown, I realised that I had all the ingredients in stock.. Then why wait?? So I got on with it…Now, I dont know how authentic it tastes, but we all just loved it so much that I make it when ever possible..It goes well with Rice, String Hoppers and Hoppers. I am sure you all will love it too.. 🙂

    Hi .. I am going to try this recipe. Can you tell me what kind of vinegar your suggest. thank you

  8. Luma Kennedy says:

    and do you remove the curry leaves, lemon grass and fenugreek before you add the chicken? are they just for flavoring oil and tomato? thanks

    I use synthetic Vinegar Luma

    No I dont remove any of these before adding chicken. It enhances the flavour of the dish
