Cutlets (made in to thick disc shapes) are great with rice & curry.
Wash tripe and cut into 5 cm (2 in) squares. In a dry pan roast coriander seeds, shaking pan or stirring constantly, until they are fragrant and darker in colour. Turn out onto a plate and dry roast the cumin seeds in the same way. Pound using a mortar and pestle or grind to powder in an electric grinder. Put all ingredients (except half the coconut milk) into a large, heavy-based saucepan, adding 250 m/8 fl oz/1 cup water. Stir well, bring to the boil, cover and simmer until tripe is tender and gravy thick. Stir in reserved coconut milk and simmer uncovered for a few minutes longer.
Serve with rice or pittu.
In Sri Lanka curries are distinguished by their colour, red, black and white. This red chicken is fiery and hot. The hotness can be reduced by substituting paprika powder for the chilli powder in the recipe.
(Preparation time 10 minutes. Cooking time 1 hour 20 minutes)
1. Remove the skins from the thighs, and cut off any excess fat. Put the thighs, the pepper and salt into a pan, together with half a litre of cold water, and bring to the boil. Simmer for 1 hour.
2. Remove the pieces of chicken onto a plate. Bring the stock rapidly to a boil, and continue boiling until it has reduced to about 150ml ( 1/4 of a pint ) and set aside.
3. Peel and finely chop the onion and garlic. Grate the ginger. In a medium-sized pan, heat the oil. Add the onions and the curry leaves, and fry until the onions are golden brown. Add the chicken pieces and continue to fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the chilli, paprika, the sugar and the stock and bring slowly to the boil.
