You may have noticed that I’m not Sri Lankan. In fact, I’ve never even been to Sri Lanka. So you would be well within your rights to call me out on the fact that this Sri Lankan curry is probably not actually Sri Lankan at all.
Buuut, the flavours in this curry were inspired by a dish I was served at a restaurant ages ago, and if they’re allowed to call it a Sri Lankan curry, then I’m doing it too. Really, all you need to know is: it’s insanely delicious, and also surprisingly easy to make!
