Country of the Food: Sri Lanka | Email to Author               Posted on 21 April 2003 @ 18:16:36

Curry Powder

Sri Lankans use two different curry powders. One is referred to as plain
curry powder and very similar to the Indian yellow curry powder obtainable
from a Oriental or Indian grocery store. The other curry powder is referred to
as black (black-dark brown in color) or roasted curry powder and is used for
meats.
The yellow curry powder can be used as the base to make the black
curry powder. This method is given in the beginning of the booklet.

1/2 lb boneless chicken (could substitute 12 oz can of Jack Mackerel)
1 lb potatoes
1/2 lb onion
2 tblspns red pepper
4 tblspns roasted curry powder
1/4 cup oil
to taste salt
Pastry ( maybe any other pancake mix could be used)
1/2 lb flour
2 cups milk (coconut or dairy)
1 egg
to taste salt
Breading and Deep Frying
3 cups oil
2 eggs
1 can bread crumbs

First make the stuffing. Boil the potatoes and peel of jackets. Cut
chicken into small pieces. Dice onions.
Add the oil to a pan at medium heat. Add the onions, chicken, and
potatoes in that order leaving about half a minute between each and leave for 4
minute. Add the roasted curry powder, red pepper powder and salt and cook for
5 minutes. Remove from stove and place where it is easily accessible.
Now for the pancakes. Mix the flour, milk and eggs using a mixer. Heat
a non stick pan which has been wiped with paper towel soaked in butter or oil.
Pour in batter to barely cover the bottom of the pan. Heat at low heat for a
minute. Remove the pancake. Place on a plate and place stuffing on top. Tuck
in the sides of the pancake to make parallel edges. Roll the pancake to make a
roll.
Continue making the pancakes and the rolls from them. Do not allow the
pancakes to cool or stand before adding the stuffing as this makes the pancake
less malleable.
Finally dip each roll into beaten egg and coat all round. Then coat with bread
crumbs and deep fry until medium brown color.
