This delicious, hot and tangy curry is from the island of Sri Lanka. The addition of lots of chilli powder and black pepper provide it with the heat, and the tang is from the addition of tamarind. It also contains a special curry powder unique to Sri Lanka in which the spices are roasted individually and very darkly to give the curry its characteristic dark colour and depth of flavour.

Brings the heat but not at the expense of flavour. Beautiful rice spices too.

This looks like a delicous, rich curry, and it really pops on that yellow table! Great work, David!


Nice but some what lacking flavour from the usual Spicery kits. Was spicy and slightly tangy from the tamarind but i was hoping for much more in terms of depth of flavour.

We're glad to hear that you still enjoyed this kit but sorry that you found it a bit lacking in flavour compared to some other kits - we'll pass this feedback on to our recipe developers and take another look at it.


Succulent.....excellent spice mix....tamarind gives it a unique taste....we decided to use prawns and linguini instead of rice...super result...an excellent meal to remember....will certainly reoeat. Merci...

Great free-styling with this kit, we're so glad to hear how much you enjoyed it! Happy spicing!


Lovely flavour, bit too hot for me, lives up to the 4/5 chillis! Nice to have a fish curry for a change.
