One of the best things about travelling to various countries is that one has the opportunity to taste the local cuisine of each country. Holidays become all the more unforgettable with the tasting of authentic food, in this case, the delectable Sri Lankan food!
The dicy spicy Kottu dish
A Sri Lankan culinary journey is simply not complete without a taste of the ultimate Sri Lankan street food! The dish is prepared with chopped up godamba roti tossed with a few vegetables and usually chicken. However, it is available in different versions like vegetable kotttu, egg kottu and cheese kottu (which is pretty much the favourite with locals and foreigners!)
Hot red polos
This is a jackfruit curry that is simply amazing! Prepared with a range of spices, this is a spicy curry that is often served with a hot plate of rice. It is quite popular with locals as well. This is a must try a dish that is available in buffets in hotels in Kalutara Sri Lanka.
A Lankan special, Lamprais!
It is a dish where the rice is cooked to perfection with types of meat like lamb, pork or beef. The delicacy is served in a banana leaf (in which it has been steamed) with a meat curry of your choice, vegetables like ash plantains and brinjals and a hot chilli sambal. Have a mouth of this and experience the flavourful bliss!
Chewy Pol roti
This mouth-watering dish is a roti made of coconut flour and water. The roti is baked on a flat pan and ideally served with a fiery lunu miris (onion sambal with a ton of chilli!). Alternatively, pol roti can also be relished with a spicy beef or meat curry. Want to know about more taste bud tingling Sri Lankan dishes?
