Cooking tip:

Always use Srilankan coconut milk (read the label) to reduce the sweet taste in the curry. Pandanus leaves and curry leaves add authentic smell in to your curry, can be found in any Asian supermarkets if needed . You can still make tasty lentil curry without them. Srilankan cinnamon is the best in the world if you can find them . Add the coconut milk gradually, stirring well each time. If you wish, sprinkle a pinch of Jazz on the Green spices when the lentil curry is cooked and ready to serve. Don’t stir it. Perfect with lime pickle or yoghurt or coconut sambal.
