Sri Lankan Okra Curry (vegan)

Recipe Description:

Despite being a food-loving island, known for its tropical climate and spices, Sri Lanka doesn’t have much of a restaurant culture. Locals typically eat at home, though their food is far from homely. It’s not uncommon to see a dozen dishes on the table, accompanied with plenty of rice, roti and hoppers (rice-based pancakes and noodles). We can’t bring you that full symphony of a Sri Lankan meal, but you can still hit all the right notes: tender Okra, fluffy potato, a three-layer base of tarka herbs, spices and chilli, all simmered in coconut milk and squeezed with lime for a sauce that is refreshing, riotous and reassuring in equal measure.
