Meat Masala : VVS Products


Using Jaffna Meat Masala in your dishes is a great way to introduce a burst of authentic Sri Lankan flavors. Here’s a step-by-step guide to incorporate this aromatic blend into your meat preparations:

  1. Marination:
    • Take your choice of meat (chicken, beef, mutton, or pork).
    • In a bowl, mix the meat with 1-2 tablespoons of Jaffna Meat Masala, a dash of salt, a splash of vinegar or yogurt, and let it marinate for at least 2 hours. Overnight marination in the refrigerator yields even better results.
  2. Cooking:
    • Heat oil or ghee in a pot or pan.
    • Add chopped onions and sauté until they turn translucent.
    • Introduce ginger and garlic paste and fry for a minute until fragrant.
    • Add in the marinated meat and brown it on all sides.
    • Pour in chopped tomatoes or tomato puree and some water, depending on the desired consistency of your gravy.
    • Let the meat simmer on low heat until it’s tender and cooked through. Add more Jaffna Meat Masala if needed.
  3. Garnishing:
    • Once the meat is cooked, sprinkle some fresh coriander or curry leaves on top for added flavor and aroma.
    • Serve with rice, bread, or rotis.
  4. Adjusting to Taste:
    • Depending on your heat preference, you can reduce or increase the quantity of Jaffna Meat Masala.
    • If the spice level is too high, add a splash of coconut milk to balance out the flavors and give a creamy texture.
  5. Other Uses:
    • Jaffna Meat Masala isn’t restricted to just meat! Use it for flavoring vegetable curries, lentil dishes, or even sprinkle some on roasted nuts or popcorn for an aromatic twist.
    • It can also be added to marinades for grilled meats or kebabs.
  6. Storage:
    • Keep the Jaffna Meat Masala in an airtight container to maintain its freshness. Store it in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight.
