I remembered that this dish is called Sothy but everytime i asked my indian friends, they seemed to blink and i feel silly for asking. So, everytime i make this dish, i will say it is coconut milk curry and would not dare to say that it is called Sothy. I was very delighted, when i searched in the net and found this statement "Kiri hodi: a Sri Lankan curry sauce, made with coconut milk, onions andturmeric. Also called pol kiri and sothy. Kiri is a Sri Lankan word for coconut." The blink i get must be from indians who are not Sri Lankan.
