Often Sri Lankan cuisine is confused with other culinary styles. However it derives it’s distinctiveness from the freshness of its herbs, spices and methods used to grind, pound, roast, temper, and combine. It’s really the personal touch and love that creates the foods uniqueness and it’s flavors. Local Sri Lankan spices used in curries are chili, turmeric, cinnamon, cardamom, coriander, rampe (pandamus leaves), curry leaves, mustard, tamarind and coconut milk. Sri Lankan food is slow to prepare and hot to consume. Because Sri Lankan food takes sometime to prepare, order early state what you want and leave the cooks to work their magic.
