Ceylon Chicken Night
Straight from the specials menu - a curry with a taste of Sri Lankan sunshine...
During the British rule of Sri Lanka the island was known as Ceylon and hence this fragrant coconut curry is known on British Indian restaurant menus as Ceylon chicken. In Sri Lanka it’s common for spices to be darkly roasted before being ground which makes their ubiquitous curry powder particularly intense in colour and flavour.
This spice blend is used in the curry served here, with other dishes from the island including homemade breads known as pol roti, a coconut chutney and devilled potatoes. We’ve also got a refreshing cucumber salad and a tangy lime pickle to cut through the richness of the coconut curry.
