Why Is Rice and Curry the Best Food Ever?.

You shall be exiled from this country if you state your contempt for the Glorious, the Magnificent Rice and Curry. This country has no space for unpatriotic citizens who cannot savour the 150 rupee (or more) goodness. 

Packed with grains of rice that will make your round belly rounder, Rice and Curry has been listed number 1 on the list the World's Best Meals, an esteemed competition judged by self proclaimed Rice and Curry EEs (Enthusiastic Experts) like me.

And here are the reasons why Rice and Curry tops all meals.

1. The ultimate cure for the insomniacs

Filled with all that carby goodness, one packet is enough to send you into hibernation. Why consult a doctor for 3000 rupees when you can get a buth packet for less than 300 rupees? 

2. Fits a sane man's idea of a balanced diet 

You get the not-so-healthy carbs from the rice, you get the protein from the chicken.

You get some diluted vitamins from the veggies, you get some cholesterol from the papadum.

It's all about the balance. 

3. It's blaaaaaady tasty, you bugger!

With a burst of flavors, all that pol goodness and that miris tang, rice and curry paves its way into being one of the tastiest meals in the Milky Way. It's got so much going on that with every bite you get a slightly different taste. The taste just gets better with every morsel. 

4. It's one of the most filling meals. Ever.

Even that uncle who goes for 7th servings at buffets won't complain after a good buth packet. 

5. Cheap AF

Unless you go to a five star, pish posh hotel and ask for a rice and curry which would come with all the taxes in the world, including a tax for your existence, Rice and Curry is cheap AF. For 150 rupees, you can get yourself rice, beetroot, dhal, chicken and beans. Oh and papadum! If you're lucky, some badapu miris too!

6. Visually appealing and looks great on Instagram

What's more aesthetic than a plate with 3 or more colourful curries and papadum fried to a golden hue?


7. It is Sri Lanka on a plate

Colourful, amazing, a little unhealthy, with lots going on, it's the most Sri Lankan thing you can get! It has been scientifically proven (not really, but who cares?) that if you're missing home, a steaming rice and curry can ease you of the nostalgia. 

8. The diverse range of curries

We can turn anything into a curry for a good old Rice and Curry.

From a kos curry to this curry to that curry, we can make a curry out of your broken bata slippers. 

Curry level: Sri Lanka

9. It's a national cure for everything

Dying of a cold? Have a spicy Rice and Curry.

Homesick? Make Rice and Curry.

Lost a leg? Eat Rice and Curry.
