Sri Lanka Coconut-Yogurt Chicken over Rice Sticks

Sri Lanka Coconut-Yogurt Chicken over Rice Sticks created by SkipperSy

This tasty recipe is based on the Sri Lanka (Ceylon) recipe Chicken Biriyani. However, instead of on a bed of basmati rice, I have used rice sticks.------

    I make my own curry powder, using cumin, coriander, turmeric, cayenne, and salt. I used this for the recipe where it called for curry powder. I followed the recipe, except I used chicken thighs and breasts, and used basmati rice instead of rice sticks (not sure what those are!). This was a very nice meat curry. I had a raita on the side, and some fruit, and was quite happy with a very nice meal.
