Kangaroo meat is full of iron and it has an omega 3. This Sri Lankan style kangaroo curry is make you more satisfy your meal.
Why I’m adding fresh rosemary; I have cooked this curry few times, the curry did taste and smell of fresh grass. So I did some experiments to get rid of the grassy taste and smell. So rosemary is the key ingredient for that.
It is easy to grow rosemary in your garden even in a pot. Rosemary is a versatile herb which can be used in meat dishes to enhance the flavour.
