12 Must-See Sri Lankan Recipe Channels On YouTube

A collection of Sri Lankan YouTube cooking channels that one should not miss.

Posted by
With the evolvement of technology and all its popularity, everyone who cooks has moved from cookery books to something that they can watch on a tablet, iPad, phone or a computer screen. There has been a detectable rise in the number of cooking channels on YouTube, which makes our lives easier as you can access them from pretty much anywhere in the world.
However, it's not every day that you come across a channel that portrays the values, elegance or the essence of Sri Lankan cooking. Sri Lankan food recipes can be complicated, even for Sri Lankans who prepare them on a daily basis.
So among the myriad of cooking channels that are widely available on YouTube, these 12 channels are a must-check, especially if you're looking for the next step of the curry that you're making right now. 

Anoma's Kitchen

Anoma's Kitchen by Anoma Wijetunga has been around since 2016, whipping up a range of dishes that is not just limited to Lankan things. Aside from recipes, she also does videos to educate the beginners in the kitchen about the equipment, ingredients and other necessary cooking tips, while sharing some of her gastronomical adventures in different cities/countries.
