I absolutely love the way the flavors marry in this curry. It reminds me of a restaurant I went to as a child in Sri Lanka. I was around 17 and still remember how much I loved this dish. They served it with white rice and an incredibly delicious pickle. I hope that you and your families love it as much as we all do.
