During the British rule of Sri Lanka the island was known as Ceylon, 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 unique curry powder particularly intense in colour and flavour.

This was sooo good - everyone gave it 10/10 .We are big curry fans and love thef act that there's a small side/relish with this as it makes the whole meal a new taste experience
Delicious Ceylon curry and sambol - I cooked this with chicken supremes instead of sliced breast because we prefer them, but otherwise stuck to the recipe and we loved it. Noticing that takeaways are becoming more and more expensive - we love The Spicery kits for the fantastic fresh flavours, the fun in creating something lovely to eat, and the cost effectiveness.
