10 Lankan Recipes You Can Try at Home.

Want to make your amma happy? Want to impress that cute girl with your curry skills? Here are some of the most popular Lankan recipes you can make at home. You're welcome! 


1. Parippu

Parippu is a thick Lankan lentil dhal. It's versatile, it's amazing. Parippu can serve as a curry, a spread or a soup, if you've got some imagination. 


2. Kottu

From your nosy neighbour to your loyal dog, kottu roti is everyone's favorite. An ensemble dish consisting of rotti, vegetables, and meat (and sometimes cheese) thrown together and cut up frantically, it's a drunken post-party favourite. If you really want a kickass kottu, but you can't wait till 5 PM, you can make it yourself! 

Here's the king of Kottuland, Hotel De Pilawoos, showing you how it's done.


3. Murunga Curry

Question : What is a murunga? Is it a straw? Is it a stick to beat your kids up with? 

Answer : it's a weird looking veggie that weirdly tastes amazing.

Murunga curry with some dosai and beef curry make a match made in heaven! 

4. Super Sexy SambolsPol Sambol, Seeni Sambol, Katta Sambol

Sambols (a mixture of ingredients used as a condiment or addition) are the keystone of any complete Sri Lankan meal. How heart broken would our idi appas be without pol sambol? What would our roast paans do without seeni sambol? How would our appas survive without katta sambol? What would our lives mean without sambols?

Learn the Holy Trinity of Sambols and make the Sambol Gods happy!


5. Negombo Prawn Curry

Besides being an amazing spot to serve you breathtaking sunsets, Negombo is also a hood for spicy curries that will make you gasp for air like a little thora maalu that has hit the Negombo shores.

Upali's shows you how to make dope Negombo Prawn curry down below.


6. Ambulthiyal

Ambulthiyal is the new black. Created with a strange black Sri Lankan spice called goraka,it's visually pretty weird. Loved by all, even your girlfriend's scary dad, this dish is not your average fish curry. 


7. Pani Roti

Pani Roti looks difficult, but it's actually not so bad. It's a Sri Lankan pancake of sorts, filled with a sweet dessicated coconut and treacle filling.  


8. Pittu Power – Pol Pittu and Mani Pittu

Bring on the pittu party! A steamed rice and coconut cake, it's a great breakfast favourite.

9. Gnanakatha

Time to throw those fancy English butter cookies out the window. Gnanakatha is a very simple (and possibly unhealthy) tea time snack, great for snacking and conversation.

10. Kiri Bath and Lunu Miris

The best way to have rice without any curries? Kiri Bath! It's the holy grail of plain rice dishes! Served with lunu miris, it makes for one of the best combinations. It's also a stalwart of Sri Lankan New Year (avurudu) celebrations or to mark any auspicious beginning.
