Cooking with the Silvermill Coconut Culinary Range.

Can you imagine cooking without coconuts?

It should be a universally accepted truth that the Sri Lankan community would not be able to think of cooking without coconuts. You can find coconuts in our Kiribath (milk rice) and the rice and curry we have to have at least once a day. As one of the oldest mills in Sri Lanka, the Giriulla Desiccating Mills which is the founding company of Silvermill, has always been an important part of the Sri Lankan community. They have made this small island a hallmark in the world of coconut products. Even the culinary range offered by Silvermill was innovated with community at its center. Silvermill’s legacy goes back more than 100 years ago. Their culinary range of products includes Coconut Milk,Coconut Sambol and Pure Coconut Oil which empowers anyone to cook conveniently. So even if you are new at cooking, or short on time, you won’t have to miss out on an integral part of the Sri Lankan cuisine. 

It’s as easy as that

With the busy lives we have, the culinary products offered by Silvermill ensures that we save on time and energy while making no compromises on flavor and nutrition. With the Silvermill Coconut Sambol, you just have to add a bit of hot water to the dehydrated mix. Once you are done rehydrating the sambol, you can add tomatoes and onions to tailor the dish to your taste, though honestly, the Silvermill Coconut Sambol tastes amazing just as it is. You can even add chillies if you just need that extra kick of spice. But you have to be warned that the sambol is already quite spicy and has the kick of spice that almost all Sri Lankans crave.

Usually, we are used to going through the long process of selecting a good coconut, breaking the coconut, scraping the coconut, preparing all the ingredients and mixing everything together with a mortar and pestle or even a grinding stone to get the best taste. But with the Silvermill Coconut Sambol, you don’t have to take your time and go through all that effort. It’s truly as convenient as breaking open the pack and adding what you need. Further, there’s no compromise on the taste as well because the Coconut Sambol is as authentic as it gets as its made with fresh coconut with no added flavors.  If you like, you can ad Maldivian fish and chillies for an additional savoury taste.

As an alternative to the coconut sambol you have to struggle to make, you can use the Silvermill coconut sambol with all the dishes you would usually enjoy with coconut sambol, be it string hoppers and kiri hodi (milk curry) or a simple meal of rice and curry. You can even use the Coconut Sambol as a dry mix with bread and butter. If you haven’t had Coconut Sambol with bread and butter, trying it first with the Silvermill product is the best. More innovatively, you can use the Silvermill coconut sambol in an easily assembled cheese platter. Even a child can prepare and enjoy a coconut sambol by themselves with minimum guidance with the Silvermill Coconut Sambol. So anyone, whether they are well versed in the kitchen, able to spruce up 5 star meals, or completely new at cooking, can use the coconut sambol that can be customized to their taste, conveniently without any hassle at any time, anywhere they are.

Convenience at your fingertips

While the coconut sambol might be one of the most innovative products in the culinary range offered by Silvermill, their Coconut Milk is one of the most convenient products that they have on offer. The 330 ml pack of Coconut Milk contains the thick milk of two coconuts that have been carefully handpicked and has no preservative colours or flavours added . So, once you open the twist cap that ensures the freshness and hygiene of the coconut milk you can use it as much or as little as you want over the course of 4 days. Just make sure to refrigerate the pack once you open it! The milk in the pack can be pretty thick so you can dilute it with water or use it as it is according to your preference. Again, you don’t have to go through the trouble of selecting a good coconut, scraping it and squeezing it for the delicious coconut milk that you can’t do without in a Sri Lankan household. 

You’ll also be surprised how close the Silvermill Coconut Milk is to a fresh coconut you would crack open at home. The taste, aroma and the thickness of the coconut milk are all the same as if it was from a fresh coconut, making the Silvermill Coconut Milk the best coconut milk pack you can find in Sri Lanka. You could use the Coconut Milk to make the delicious kiribath you’ve been craving or even as a substitute for pasteurized milk. If you haven’t had kiribath with coconut sambol, you can get a novel experience with the coconut sambol from Silvermill.

You can easily make a wide variety of dishes ranging from Sri Lankan cuisine, other cuisines, deserts as well as smoothies. The Silvermill culinary products are truly versatile in that way, empowering anyone to make the most of their time. Furthermore, by buying this pack, you will be helping the coconut export industry in Sri Lanka, and ensuring there is a reduction in coconut wastage as Silvermill ensures that every part of the coconut is utilized. 

The legacy of Silvermill

The Coconut Oil has always been a product that Silvermill has been known for so it doesn’t really need any special introduction. But a reminder about its legacy and quality is always welcome. The Silvermill group is over 100 years old and even before they were known as Silvermill, the Giriulla Desiccating mills was producing a variety of quality coconut based products. It is a globally renowned manufacturer of international brands, taking the authenticity of Sri Lanka to the world. They have truly contributed to making this small island a hub of trade and quality products. There are also no preservatives or artificial flavorings in the Silvermill coconut based products which makes them just as good, if not better than what you could get at home through a lot of effort and time. 

When it comes to the Silvermill Coconut Oil, the product has been one of the first coconut products to receive the Coconut Development Authority’s approval as well as the five star certificate which ensures the purity and quality of the coconut oil from the start of production to its end. A standardized process that ensures there are no harmful chemicals results in a high quality product that you can always trust. Therefore, be it for cooking or other purposes, the Silvermill Coconut Oil should be your first choice.

Not only does Silvermill empower anyone to cook conveniently, they also make sure that no part of the coconut goes to waste. When we crack open a coconut at home, it’s usually only for one purpose, either to get the coconut milk or make a sambol. But at Silvermill, there is an assurance that no part of the coconut goes to waste.

Silvermill has their own King coconut water beverage called KiCO – king coconut water, pure coconut oil, Sri Lankan Coconut Sambol, Desiccated Coconut along with a variety of other coconut based products that ensures there is little to no wastage, as if you needed any more reason to switch to the Silvermill culinary range of products. When you choose Silvermill products, you are not just choosing a quality product, you are helping the Sri Lankan community as well. We were happy to get a gift pack from Silvermill which proved the quality and freshness of their products. The Silvermill products have truly proven to be the best in the market, ensuring quality, empowering anyone to cook conveniently and giving back to the community.
