4  garlic cloves (crushed)

  1. Mix all the ingredients for curry paste
  2. Put in a mixie and grind to a smooth paste. (Can add ¼ cup water while grinding)

Preparation of curry

  1. Boil the muranga leaves in the 1 1/2 cups of water.
  2. Once the leaves have softened add the prepared curry paste, lemon juice, valhomas, salt. Mix well and cook for about 7 minutes.
  3. Once the mixture begins to boil, add the coconut milk, and stir.
  4. Cook for a few more minutes.
  5. Serve with roti or rice

Note: Some people throw the water in which the muranga leaves are boiled. I prefer to cook the curry with the water.

I am sure if you make this once for your loved ones they are going to expect you to cook this lovely curry very frequently.
