Kottu roshi

If you have ever visited a sri lankan restaurent or sri lanka it self you will probably know what this is. Sri lankan food is very popular among locals in maldives. Both my parents did their schooling in sri lanka and my sister's also did a bit of schooling. Holidays were spent there quite often.

Anyway, this recipe came to mind when i had quite a lot of left overs. It took me some time to master it although I am not really sure it tastes as the real thing, this is just what I came up with . Plus i dont go tap tapping on the pan like they do :)

For 2:

1 cup of chopped beans and grated carrots
3 big cloves of garlic(its very garliky)
1 leeks or 1 onion finely sliced
3 green chillies sliced
1 cup finely shreded cooked flat bread ( such as roshi, chapati, lebanese bread even roti canai)
1/2 cup cooked chicken ( left over roast) chopped
3/4 cup ( aprox)left over curry gravy, If you dont have any mix 2 tsp curry powder with 1/2 cup coconut milk and a little water.

1. Heat oil in a wok or large frying pan. Use about 3 tbsp oil. Add onion or leeks and stir fry till soft and translucent and just begining to colour.

2. Add your veges and meat and stir fry over high heat , sprinkle a little water to cook the beans, stir. THen add the garlic and chillies stir fry.

3. Add the shreded flat bread, and stir fry and then once everthing is mixed , stir in the curry sauce . It should be slightly wet but not mushy. Season with salt.

Serve immediately. Enjoy!
