    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:
    For this companion volume to the award-winning Hot Sour Salty Sweet, Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid travel west from Southeast Asia to that vast landmass the colonial British called the Indian Subcontinent. It includes not just India, but extends north to Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Nepal and as far south as Sri Lanka, the island nation so devastated by the recent tsunami. For people who love food and cooking, this vast region is a source of infinite variety and eye-opening flavors.

    Home cooks discover the Tibetan-influenced food of Nepal, the Southeast Asian tastes of Sri Lanka, the central Asian grilled meats and clay-oven breads of the northwest frontier, the vegetarian cooking of the Hindus of southern India and of the Jain people of Gujarat. It was just twenty years ago that cooks began to understand the relationships between the multifaceted cuisines of the Mediterranean; now we can begin to do the same with the foods of the Subcontinent.
