COLOMBO (News 1st): How would you like your food? – Spicy? Sweet? Personally, I prefer eye-tearing spicy food (Yumm!).
A good black tea cuppa and a plate of Pol Roti with Lunu Miris or a mouth-watering dish of Isso Wade is all you need to satisfy your taste buds.
If that isn’t much satisfying then you must try our Traditional Rice and Curry- there’s no doubt this will leave your eyes teary and mouth watery. When I say Rice and Curry, it isn’t just one curry. It’s a plate full of rice served with a number of curries.
This plate of rice is best served with red-rice and is definitely incomplete without the classic ‘Pol Sambol’ (coconut salad) or ‘Mallung’ (green leafy vegetable salad).
If you are a tourist here on vacation, make sure not to miss out on the spicy cuisines Sri Lanka has to offer!
Walk into a tiny hut-like restaurant or a luxury five star, anywhere in the country, you are sure to find these curries in the most authentic Sri Lankan style.
Here is a list of my favorites and most preferred Curries:
We also cook potatoes with coconut milk to make it like a curry. This curry is enjoyed during breakfasts with string hoppers- the must-try Sri Lankan food!
Another Sri Lankan styled must eat fish curry would be the Black Fish Curry (Maalu Ambul Thiyal). Made using goraka (Garcinia or also known as Indian Tamarind) which gives the black color and thick sour flavor to the gravy, this Fish curry is included in the authentic Sri Lankan Food list. This -finger licking good- dish is found only in Sri Lanka!
So – when you plan a vacation to our amazing country, be sure to experience the food of a lifetime. The Curries are the essentials. If you miss out on these Curries, then you have missed a huge part of Sri Lanka, and one of the best experiences the country has to offer.
This blessed island offers the world’s most rare and amazing Spices. These Spices full of flavor are the secret that helps create the traditional Sri Lankan gastronomy- the Spicy Goodness of Sri Lanka!
