Polos Curry (Young Jack Fruit Curry)

 '' This is a traditional favorite Sri Lankan Curry''

500g Polos
4 tsp salt
a thin slice of ginger
1/4 tsp of turmeric powder
40 g onion chopped
3 tsp chillie powder
4 tsp corinader powder
2 tsp of sweet cumin powder
2tsp cumin powder
2tsp fenugreek seeds
2 pieces of goraka
3 cloves of garlic
1'' cinnamon
Coconut milk from one coconut (around 6cups)

Peel polos and cut in to 2'' pieces.
Add all ingredients together. Mix well and allow to sit for 10 – 12 minutes. Add coconut milk, mix well. Bring to boil and simmer till the polos is soft and gravy is thick.(simmer for atleast 1 hour)

Tip: Can cook in pressure cooker for 3 whistles and then open lid and simmer till gravy is thick and polos is soft.
Check for salt and spices several times as the polos cooks and adjust accordingly. Also turn the polos occasionally to prevent burning.
Make it ahead of time and keep as it will help to absorb flavor well in to the polos pieces.
