Best Dishes in Sri Lanka – A Taste of Local Cuisine

The Sri Lankan palate is one that fancies sugar and spice and all that’s nice, yes all this but mostly, spice! Let’s take a look at some of the best Sri Lankan dishes you ought to try on your travels to the island.

Polos curry

This delicacy is prepared with young unripe jackfruit cut into cubes which is then cooked with tasty spices. The spicy curry is usually eaten with rice or occasionally with bread too. It is quite easy to pass of this vegetarian dish as a meat too.

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!

Sri Lankan chicken curry

This is quite commonly eaten in the normal Sri Lankan diet known in Sinhala as kukul mas curry. The curry is prepared with chicken that is cut up into chunks, seasoned with spices and then left to boil while adding coconut milk for a lovely thick curry. The curry is usually enjoyed with bread, rice, or even with kottu!

 

Pol rotti and lunu miris

This is an authentic food made with flour, and coconut mixed with water, the dough is then baked on a flat frying pan. The rotti is then eaten with lunu miris which is basically chopped onions pounded together with chilli powder and salt for taste.

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.
