One of my favourite foodie spots in Galle Fort is Galle Fort Hotel which is also featured in my foodie guide of Where to Eat and Drink in Galle Fort. I requested the recipe to share with you here on Style in Sri Lanka as it’s truly delicious. I’ve already published one chicken curry by Jetwing…
As an ever enthusiastic advocate of local cuisine, every pocket of Sri Lanka has its own variation of classic national dishes. Having sampled (ok, scoffed) a multitude of crab curries across the island from Jaffna, Negombo, Bentota to Pasikudah, each equally delicious interpretation is unique whether it’s the type of crab, technique or spices used.…
I’ve always loved the taste of a sweet and spicy beetroot curry. Complimenting almost any combination of dishes; from meat and fish to dhal or other vegetables, it adds dynamic flavour and texture unique to Sri Lankan cuisine.
I was introduced to this irresistibly fruity cheesecake at the Old Palm House in Galle; a charming refurbished colonial house in perfect harmony of contemporary, stylish design and original character.
Next up on my top Sri Lankan recipes is an absolute favourite of mine; Jetwing’s mouth-watering chicken curry. It’s surprisingly straightforward and works alongside any vegetable dishes in addition to a side of Pol Rotti bread- us Brits like something to dip!
Fancy a tasty reinvention of the classic omelette? With just a few extra ingredients you can make a delicious Sri Lankan alternative, perfect for breakfast or even (as us Brits tend to favour whenever possible!) a lazy dinner.
Pol rotti is a round, flat coconut bread (enjoyed similarly to naan in India) and is quick and easy to make- popular as both a ‘small eat’ or accompaniment to a flavoursome curry.
