    1. Hi there

      I recently had this in a ceylonese restaurant in Liverpool (Coriander). 2 questions:
      1 can you use kevra water (screwpine essence) instead of the rampeh leaves?
      2 The version I had used a lot of tamarind, the curry was fairly sour. Do you have a version of the recipe using that?
      Cheers
