Gedara.

Gedara in Pannipitiya is a worthy lunch spot if you're in the neighbourhood, or even a little beyond. We made our trip to this rice & curry spot all the way from Nugegoda and was quite satisfied with our meal.

Rice & Curry

At Gedara, you get a wide spread of proteins – eggs, chicken (free-range and broiler), pork, sausages, and over 15 veg curries to choose from. 

We chose Brinjal Moju, Tempered Okra, Boiled Manioc and Dhal curry to go with this Omelette Rice & Curry (Rs. 320). Every buth plate here gets a couple of papadums and fried paprika.

Boasting with curry kicks, the dhal curry was a delight. The tempered okra wasn't too oily, the brinjal moju added a tinge of sweetness to the meal, and we enjoyed having a bit of scraped coconut with the boiled manioc. If you're a vegetarian, this is a good combination.

Clocking in at Rs. 550, this Gum Kukul Mas (free-range chicken) Rice & Curry had the same excellent dhal curry, tempered okra and brinjal moju, as well as a green beans curry, that carried a subtle whiff of fenugreek. I'm a sucker for gum kukul mas. However, while this chicken curry was spicy and delicious, I can't quite justify the Rs. 550 price tag. 

Gedara does a fantastic pork curry. From spices to curry leaves to rampe, everything here bound so well to the tender curry pork. The other elements on the plate included some milky beetroot, tangy Amberella and a fresh Kohila sambol. The banana flower fry was quite great too. For Rs. 350, it's a delish deal.

Ambience & Service

The rice & curry counter is conveniently established behind a plastic shield and is also covered by a thatched canopy. More than 30 people can eat here at a time, while enjoying some good, live classical music. Much like the other buth kadeys, it's self-service. You can place your orders from the rice & curry counter, pay at the cashier as the staff assort it, and then bring it to your table on your own.

Conclusion

Gedara does superb rice & curry and offers them in generous portions, but our only complaint is that their pricing is a bit high in comparison to other similar establishments in town.
