Tripe refers to the stomach of the cow and it’s also called Baabath in Srilanka!!Kodal Baabath is directly translated to intestines and stomach in Tamil.It is a popular dish in the Malay streets!!Tripe is commonly found in many cuisines around the world, only those with a certain palette can tolerate this though!!! Pasthol is also made using these parts of the cow.
Refer to my recipe for Pasthol in another post :

Follow Image for Steps
Step One : In The same pan,sauté B onions till nice & golden.Then add chopped greenchillies & whole spices.When this gets nice & fragrant,then add In spice powders.
Add crushed tomatoes 🍅🍅🍅 & mix well
If you have fresh spices you could dry roast & blend them fresh
that would b the best but I don’t knw how convenient it will be for u
I would usually mix the spices together with tamarind pulp,& lime Juice to make a paste before adding them in.
Step Two : Add in fresh coconut paste & mix.
Step Three : Add tamarind and some water to prevent from burning & keep on low & cook covered for at least five minutes.You could also add sliced capsicums or even few potatoes if you prefer at this point.
Step Four : Then add in the stir fried tripe & mix well.Since it is already cooked till tender theres no need to keep for too long but to get a thicker gravy you must keep on low fire for a few extra minutes.
add in one cup coconut milk & cashew pwd. check for salt & adjust accordingly.
(Optional)Add beaten curd or cream if you want a lighter gravy.
Step Five : When the thickness of the curry has reached to the consistency you prefer & drizzle lime juice.
Switch Off Fire & Let It Settle For Atleast Five Minutes
Remember The Curry Thickens A Little Bit Even After The Fire Is Off.
Finally Sprinkle Fresh Corriander Leaves & Fried Onions On Top
This Curry is ideally paired with SriLankan Mani Pittu and Spicy Katta Sambol!!! The mani pittu is also drizzled with some thick coconut milk…Yummmm Leftovers are so delicious with some roast paan and pol sambol too….
