Sri Lankan Meal in Rice & Curry

Written by The Dr Grub on December 1, 2011

Rice & Curry book by S.H Fernando Jr. introduces food from Sri Lanka. Here are some authentic Sri Lankan delicacies served at Sri Lankan’s ambassador’s house during the book’s launch (Embassy press release).

The Sri Lankan dinner was served buffet style in traditional clay pottery.

Egg hoppers (Appa) is a bowl-shaped thin pancake, similar to South Indian, made with yeasty rice flour made breakfast and dinner.

Chicken curry is similar to curries from Indian subcontinent, but made with some different ingredients such as lemon grass. Sour fish curry made from tuna and flavored by gambooge (goraka), which gives it a complex flavor acquired sour taste.

Cashew curry made with raw cashews in coconut milk, being one of its major producers. This eggplant lived up to the author’s description of being the tastiest — slightly sweet and savory made with deep fried eggplant in coconut milk.

Sambol a unique condiment made with spiced grated coconut and onions, sometime flavored by dried shrimp.

My Sri Lankan dinner plate…

Rice & Curry cookbook on Sri Lankan home cooking has 100 easy to follow recipes. The book is now featured in New York Times list of notable cookbook in 2011 and you can read more of author’s writing in a blog with same name, Rice & Curry.

    After I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and
    now whenever a comment is added I get four emails with the exact same comment.
    There has to be a way you can remove me from
    that service? Many thanks!

    hell there and thank you for your info – I’ve definitely picked up something new frrom righht here.
    I did however exdpertise a few technical points using this web
    site, since I experienced to reload the website a llot of times previous too I could get it to load correctly.

    I haad been wondering if yokur web hosting is OK? Not that I’m complaining,
    but sluggish loading instances times will sometimes affect your placement
    in google and could damage your high-quality score iif advertising and marketing with Adwords.
    Anyway I am adding this RSS to myy email and can look out for a lott
    more of your respective exciting content. Enure that
    you update this again soon.
