Food …so divine…the Lanka way…

Food in srilanka….is so tasty…very spicy …and many varieties…!

And vegetarians have a lot of options too…

One never tires of food…our breakfast for all 6 days…was in 5 star hotels…the spread was fab…& all the authentic food was there too..but…I strongly believe…if one has to taste the real authentic food…it shud be at a locals home…or on the street …small hotels…

So …with my drivers help…lunch… Was always at the best small ,road side hotel…it was awesome…

It is an other story…that I ended up with severe gastritis..with all that spices…but what the heck….not everyday I will get a chance to eat the srilankan food…

Some must food to try…

Rice & curry…in this curry can b chicken ,fish,r vegetarian…along with some definite add on's…like srilankan dhal,jackfruit curry,lotus flower curry,leafy veggie curry

Then hoppers…string hoppers(sevia)..with curry of your choice

Egg hoppers…dosa with egg on top ,eaten with sambhal (a spiciest salsa like)

Roti's…egg roti,coconut roti…

Sweets…coconut based mostly…my fav was coconut pancake

Kiribath—-a milk rice…

Halapa…ragi sweet..

Kottu roti…didn't like much

Devilled calamari…I didn't taste but vijay did..nice he said

On different days,tasted beet root curry,pumpkin curry,bhendi curry…all excellent stuff

4 or 5 types of chutney like stuff …like a dip…can be used for anything!

And while on road…in different areas…u can eat many stuff…locally grown there…

Like cashew nuts,banana,papaya,jackfruit ,passion fruit…& king coconut …an orangish tender coconut…

So ..some pics then
