This easy, authentic Sri Lankan lamb curry recipe will bring the aromatic and distinct flavours from your local takeaway into your home. Adjust the amount of chilli to suit your level of spice and, if you can’t find roasted curry powder, simply toast some curry powder in a dry frying pan for a few minutes to release the aromas from the spices. This curry is best when made the day before to let the flavours develop, and it freezes very well so you can cook up a batch. Serve with rice and homemade tomato and onion salsa for a flavoursome family meal.
