Kukul Mas with Seeni Sambol and Cucumber Salad ~ Cajun Blackened Chicken with Dirty Rice

Kukul Mas with Seeni Sambol and Cucumber Salad:
In Sri Lanka chicken curries are known as kukul mas. Hundreds of different versions exist, each with their own specific blend of spices which are usually very darkly roasted to give a delicious, deep and complex flavour. Key spices in Sri Lankan cuisine include cinnamon, curry leaves, mustard seeds, chilli and lemongrass, an ingredient more commonly associated with Southeast Asian cuisine. On the side of the chicken curry we've got a fiery seeni sambol and a cooling cucumber salad.

Cajun Blackened Chicken with Dirty Rice 2022:
‘Blackening‘ is a modern technique associated with Cajun cookery and involves the caramelisation of spices on the outside of chicken or fish to create a delicious edible crust. The chicken is served here with two Cajun staples - a fiery hot sauce and dirty rice (a delicious concoction of rice, vegetables and traditionally chicken liver or sausage).
