    How to Cook dishes from Sri Lanka


    Sri Lankan Sri Lankan cuisine shares much with Indian cuisine, and the two countries have exchanged many dishes. Sri Lankan dishes often take the form of rice (boiled or steamed) with curry.

    Some popular Sri Lankan recipes and dishes include:
      Hoppers
    • Hoppers - Pancakes made from rice flour, coconut milk, and palm toddy (an alcoholic beverage made from palm sap) or yeast. There are many varieties of hoppers, including versions with egg, with creamy coconut milk inside, and sweet varieties. Hoppers may be eaten for breakfast or dinner.

    • Kiribath - Rice cooked in coconut milk. The dish is prepared by boiling the rice in water for about 15 minutes, and then adding coconut milk and continuing to cook until the liquid is absorbed. Salt is used to season the dish when cooking, and cashew or sesame seeds are also sometimes added. Kiribath may be eaten with lunumiris (red onions and fiery spices), with jaggery (unrefined sugar) and bananas, or on special occasions with various sweets.

    • Koola'ya - A dish made from mixing leftover curries with rice, and making it into balls. It is often served at temples, and is eaten with chapati (thin flatbread).

    • Kottu - A pancake with vegetables, egg and meat. There are many varieties including both vegetarian and meat versions. Although not traditional, cheese is also nowadays sometimes added to the dish.

    • Vada - A savory snak made from dal (stewed pulses), lentil, or potato.

    Product Description:
    After my travels around India and Pakistan which inspired my Pakistani Recipes - An Un-Ordinary Collection, I then travelled onto Sri Lanka.

    Although similar in many ways to Indian cuisine Sri Lankan food does maintain it's own distinctive taste identity.

    The curries are certainly spicier and a little bit hotter and I had a lot of fun collecting these very special delicious recipes.

    Some of the ingredients can be a little tricky to get but trust me it is definitely worth the effort.

    Product Description:
    The breathtaking island of Sri Lanka lies in the Indian Ocean, separated from southeastern India by a mere 30-mile chain of shoals. This proximity to India has had an inevitable effect on Sri Lanka's cuisine, as did the successive Portuguese, Dutch, and British occupations. However, over the centuries the majority of these dishes have been modified to suit the local palate. Exotic Tastes of Sri Lanka highlights the gamut of flavors of this cuisine, which runs from hot and spicy to comforting and mild.

    The chapters of Exotic Tastes of Sri Lanka are devoted to short eats (appetizers), salads, staples, vegetarian dishes, poultry, meat and egg recipes, seafood preparations, desserts, and sweetmeats (treats). An array of exotic ingredients that is key and integral to Sri Lankan cuisine enhances the dishes. For instance, gambooge, with its uniquely sour flavor, is often used in traditional seafood preparations like Fish Ambul Thiyal, while either grated coconut or coconut milk intensify most recipes, including Pumpkin Kalu Pol Curry. Local staples are delectable works of art, such as exquisite Stringhoppers, Hoppers, and Pittu.

    Since the entrées revolve around the nation's favorite ingredient, rice, the loosely coined term "rice and curry" best describes Sri Lankan cuisine. Other staple ingredients include coconut (milk, oil, grated), as well as aromatic herbs and spices such as curry leaves, mint, coriander and fennel seeds, and cloves. Sri Lanka offers a particularly impressive repertoire of vegetarian and seafood preparations.

    Sample menus, explanations of spice uses and availability, typical cooking techniques, and descriptions of traditional utensils complement the 157 recipes, all adapted for home cooks.
