Just knocked this one up.

I was very happy for my first attempt.

Used a JB base and Abduls spice mix.

Didn't have any coconut powder so substituted with fine desiccated coconut.

In hindsight i think i should of added alot more desiccated to counter.

The coconut milk powder is a lot sweeter than dedicated coconut, so a touch more sugar would also be needed to compensate.

CA's recipes tend to be on the sweet side. Be warned.

Made this to the letter (except I added chopped coriander)last night and it was the best BIR I've made in a couple of years. Absolutely beautiful. Looks the part also! Well worth a go.

This is the next one on my list to try. Is it coconut powder or coconut milk powder I should be using?

I'd never heard of a ceylon. Perhaps it's described on menus as mild and/or sweet, in which case I'd likely skim straight past it.

Sure enough, 3tsp of sugar would've made it far too sweet for my liking, but with 1tsp and a couple of small green chillies and it was absolutely superb. This one's a keeper.

Ceylon used to be my BIR curry of choice until I discovered that it contained coconut; after that, if ever I tried to eat it, I could feel the tiny flakes of coconut squishing between my teeth, and it lost all of its appeal ...
