Whether you're a big foodie or not, you should
try Sri Lankan food at least once in your
lifetime. The taste of Sri Lankan food can be
strong and mild at the same time. It varies
according to the choice of the individual.
Sri Lankan food culture is connected to the very
core of its culture. The majority of Sri Lankans
are farmers, and they grow rice mainly along with
the other vegetables. We grow rice in paddy
fields, and the people who own paddy fields are
considered rich and wealthy.

1. Rice and Curry
4

When it comes to Sri Lankan food culture, I can't
start off without mentioning our staple food -
rice. Actually, We like to eat rice for all three
meals of the day, along with three or four
vegetables. It's very healthy and delicious, but
sometimes it takes time to prepare a whole meal.
So, we go for other substitutes, which I'm going
to talk about later.

2. Milk Rice
6

This is another one of Sri Lankan cuisine recipes
that is very unique, which you won't be able
resist! It's a perfect blend of the milky and
aromatic taste of coconut milk with fresh rice.
No wonder it's my favorite Sri Lankan dish! We
consider this dish an auspicious one, and when we
first take the harvest from paddy fields, we
prepare it from the very first portion of rice
and dedicate it to the gods. As most Sri Lankans
are Buddhists, we give the first portion of rice
to the temple by preparing milk rice.

3. Coconut Sambol
8

Sambol means salad. The main ingredient of
coconut sambol is grated coconut. This dish is a
fine mix of coconut, red onion, chili, lime
juice, and salt. It is great with plain rice,
bread, roti, or anything else that delights your
taste buds! We make it often as it is very easy
to make in no time at all!

4. Yellow Coconut Mallum
10

The difference between this dish and coconut
sambol is the fact that here we use turmeric
instead of red chilies (turmeric has antioxidant
properties that are great for skin!). This dish
has a sweet aromatic smell from the fine blend of
freshly grated coconut and turmeric.

5. Coconut Rotti
12

This can be used as a main meal. Coconut Rotti is
made with wheat flour and freshly grated coconut
in an earthy pan. We have coconut rotti for
breakfast and dinner. It's very tasty with
coconut sambol, or any other side dish you
prefer.
