Kottu

This is an unusual street food indeed! It is prepared with godamba rotti (a thin floury dough that is fried) chopped up and stir-fried with vegetables and seasoned with salt and pepper. The dish comes in all sorts of versions like vegetable kottu, egg kottu, and even cheese kottu. It is a favourite among locals and sure to be a favourite with you too!

Pol rotti and lunu miris

Curd and treacle

Usually eaten as a delicious dessert, beautiful golden kithul pani or treacle is drizzled over a serving of creamy, thick and silky curd. It is an explosion of sweetness inside your mouth! If you happen to be holidaying in a hotel, perhaps in AVANI Kalutara Resort, try out these scrumptious Sri Lankan delights. If you are on the go, there are plenty of restaurants in Kalutara or any part of the island that serves these dishes.
