Sri Lankan Kukul Mas with Pol Roti and Coconut Sambol

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 potato dish known as ala thel dala, a sweet and spicy onion chutney called seeni sambol and a cooling coconut sambol. Finally we’ve got pol roti - flatbreads made with coconut, onion and coriander - which are great for scooping up all the other dishes!
