Garlic curry (Garlic kalu pol maluwa)

Garlic is just a magnificent ingredient with many benefits. As I learned from my mother, it is very beneficial in lowering the Cholesterol level. Using garlic in our food is the better way to avoid heart deceases. When I was with my parents, my mother used to cook a garlic curry at least once in  a month because of the benefits of garlic.

Now it is my turn. I want to think of the health of my family. Therefore thought of continuing my mother’s practice.
Here is one way of we consume garlic as main ingredients


Ingredients (for 2 portions)

2 medium size Garlic (which has totally about 20 cloves)
About 3 tblspn grated coconut
1 tspn Chili powder
1 tspn curry powder
¼ tsp turmeric powder
1 inch piece Cinnamon
½ tsp fengruik seeds
1 tsp white rice
½ of a tomato sliced
1 sprig of curry leaves
½ cup thick coconut milk
Salt to taste

Peel & wash garlic cloves.If the cloves are very big,just cut into halves.
Keep it aside.

In a pan, roast grated coconut & rice together until golden brown. Keep aside.

Again roast chili, curry powder & turmeric powder until brownish. Do it carefully without burning.

Now grind all these roasted ingredients & also tomato slices together into a paste.
Mix the paste with garlic, add curry leaves & other remaining ingredients. Add some water & cook in medium flame.

Once the garlic is cooked, add thick coconut milk & adjust salt.
Simmer for few minutes & remove the pan from the burner.
Serve hot with rice or any type of roti.

The spices mentioned above are as per my taste. However you can adjust it & cook a very tasty dish.
