You can add the main ingredient/s of your choice to this ceylon sauce
Inspired by the flavours of Sri Lanka, this ceylon sauce is definitely one to have in your curry house recipe library.
It’s so good.
Ceylon sauce is just as easy to make as the others but has a lot more ingredients in it. Please don’t let that put you off making it.
How is ceylon sauce based on Sri Lankan curries?
Star anise, real cinnamon, curry leaves and black pepper are all popular ingredients in Sri Lankan curries.
Coconut is too so this really is a British version of a Sri Lankan curry.
That said, it doesn’t look like any curries I had while travelling around Sri Lanka. This curry is 100% British.
The base sauce.
All curry house curries are made with a base sauce. This base sauce is what gives the curries their famous flavour and texture.
My ‘go to’ recipe is here.
You need to make the base sauce if you want to make curry house style curries. It only takes about an hour to make. Once made, you can cook up a ceylon sauce in minutes.
