Maldive fish flakes provide an authentic Sri Lankan flavour to this curry however it still tastes delicious without this ingredient which can often be tricky to find.
Serve this dish with rice (and perhaps another curry, a sambal or grilled chicken).
This curry can also be frozen, which is handy if you are planning on making a few different curries for a later date.
The curry powder can be used in other curry recipes..
