Romesh’s Beef/Chicken Curry and Coconut Rice:

My friend Romesh is from Sri Lanka. He insists the only two things he learned how to cook his entire life is chicken/beef curry and coconut rice so he cooks this every time I come over. Good thing it tastes amazing!

Romesh’s beef/chicken curry:
1 lb meat: bonless chicken breast chopped or beef chopped or bone-in chicken thighs
-salt to taste
-1/2 can coconut milk
-1/2 cup soy sauce
-oinions cut into slices
-2 tablesppons curry powder
-black pepper to taste
-1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
-oil to fry

In a pot with a lid heat oil and add chicken/beef...fry for several minutes, just long enough to brown slightly on the outside...then add all other ingredients except for the coconut milk. Cover with lid and simmer for 10 minutes. Add coconut milk, mix and simmer for another several minutes.

Romesh’s Rice:
Basmati rice - cooked
1-2 eggs scrambled
Green scallions chopped
Dash of coconut milk

Cook rice and set aside. Lightly scramble eggs in frying pan, add scallions and cook for one minute. Add rice and mix. Add coconut milk to taste.
