actually kasa kasaa is poppy seeds. poppy and chia have similar properties, thus often mixed up. as far as I know chia seeds is called sau ata in sinhala.

Hey! Yep Poppy seeds and Chia look very similar, Sau Ata is known as Sago in English, Kasa Kasaa ata is what we use to make the local drink Saruath and that's Chia Seeds if I'm not mistaken!
And you're welcome! :)

Original chia seeds are not produced in the region, as they come from Latin America, so chia seeds are not abundant in local Sri Lankan market, we are yet to adopt a name for it too.
