Next up on my top Sri Lankan recipes is a real favourite of mine; Jetwing’s mouth-watering chicken curry. It’s surprisingly easy and works alongside any array of vegetable dishes, perfectly lapped up with Pol Roti or rice.
A traditional Sri Lankan carb accompaniment instead of or in addition to rice, pol roti is incredibly quick and easy to prepare. Absorbing the rich spicy ‘gravy’ of the countless array of curries & sambols, the simplest way to describe this is Sri Lanka’s version of naan bread.
In Sri Lanka, it’s most often enjoyed at breakfast with a side of spicy lunu mirris; a fiery sambol made with chilli, onion and an optional pinch of maldive fish.
