Sri lankan Pol Mallun recipe (Coconut Mallun)


Add maldive fish, sliced onions, sliced chillie, tomato, salt, tamarind juice, sliced goraka, little bit of red chillie powder and curry leaves into a pan with 1 cup water and bring to a boil.
While it’s boiling mix coconut and turmeric powder. When the maldive fish is cooked add the coconut mix into the curry and cook for a while stirring all the time.
When the coconut is well cooked remove from the stove. This goes well with String Hoppers or Rice packets.
