Young Jack Fruit Black Curry, well known as Polos Ambula is another traditional dish of sri lanka. This is used as a substitute dish of meat which is enjoyed in our meals from young to old.
Our farmers in the fields wait for their wives to bring their lunch to them, that contains this polos Ambula – Young Jack Black Fruit Curry with rice. This is another slow food preparation that needs 2 hours of cooking on low fire.
This dish is prepared at times for special events in order to keep our cooking traditions alive. I have added Sri Lankan spices and roasted masala powder in this famous mouth watering polos ambula.
I introduce this dish to you now and invite you to try this at your homes.
And i warmly invite everyone around the world to visit our little pearl and enjoy our great hospitality with amazing food.

    Sorry to say but this looks unappetizing. Where the tomatoes came from? Four cups of thick milk is not enough at all, you must mix the 2nd squeeze as well. Bring it to the boiling point then cover and simmer. Should add little cardamom, Cinnamon, crushed pepper and roasted fresh coconut (grounded)for better taste (optional)
