Thanx Hal

Enjoyed all youtbue videos and specially appreciate the pumpkin curry lesson

Yes when we go to other countries when we get fed up of their food, next we try Indian food to understand that is not our taste. Surprisingly Malay food is somewhat closer to our taste though they are bit sweet than our chilli mixed spicy taste.

Yes , Sri Lankan food is now understood and just enjoy this authentic pumpkin curry of SL

Kith,

Were you in the aviation technical section or worked at times in Sri Lankan Catering section?


Anyway, please share your cooking and inspire all the forum members who still cannot survive in the wild alone without their wives!

I have mentioned that Indian tourism is something we have to consider and Kith also confirmed that ...

Yet the cheap politicians view of Indian tourists was positioned in general public's mind. Now these Cheap Politicians have to eat their own words...

මෙරට  ඕනෑම නිෂ්පාදනයකට වඩා අඩු පිරිවැයකින් ඉන්දියාව සිය රට තුලදීම නිෂ්පාදනය කරගන්නා බව දිල්කා පෙන්වා දෙද්දී ඇමති හරීන් කියන්නට උත්සාහ කලේ ඉන්දී සංචාරයකයින් ගෙන්වා මෙරට සංචාරක කර්මාන්තය නැංවිය හැකි බවයි.
‘ඔබතුමාලමනෙ ඒ කාල කිවුවේ ඉන්දීය සංචාරකයො ඇවිත් හෝටල්වල බිත්තර තම්බගෙන කනව. ඒ අයගෙන් කොහොමද සංචාරක කර්මාන්තය ගොඩදාන්නෙ. ඇයි අද මෙහෙම කියන්නෙ’ යි දිල්කා ඇසූ අනපේක්‍ෂිත පැනයෙන් ඇමතිවරයා කලබල විය. ‘හරහටමනේ කතා කරන්නේ සුබවාදීව හිතන්නකො’ ඊට කියමින් ඇමතිවරයා තවත් පැහැදිලි කිරීමකට ගියේය.

Un-fair Tourism - Page 5 Empty The Top 14 of Sri Lankan Food

Post by කිත්සිරි ද සිල්වා on Thu Feb 18, 2016 2:56 pm

Along with its neighbour India, Sri Lanka has ruled the world of spices since the beginning of modern-day civilisations.

Centuries ago westerners got a whiff of this wealth of spices and were instantly hooked to it, so much so that they stayed there for centuries and spread the taste throughout the world.

Even today, Sri Lankan food is one of the reasons why travellers from across the world are forced to elongate their journeys to taste the best that Sri Lanka’s kitchens have to offer.

Here is a list of those 14 Sri Lankan food items you can’t afford to miss.

How did " Pol Roti " miss the cut ? What a Face

පැනෑටියා


Once I found a wriggling insect like cockroach in the sands in Kalutara beach.. I cleaned the sand form its body and held it up. A security guard of the Hotel said that is " Panatiya " and its living in the sand.

Next morning when I was walking on sand with my child I found a team of young boys digging the sand and collecting " Panatiyas" in a bucket. When I asked them about it they say they make a  tasty curry with that.. Later I had " Panatiya" curry with toasted bread with the boys...

Surprisingly many Sri Lankans do not know that some Sri Lankans eat " insects"...Just ask from someone living near by beach from Dehiwala to Kalutara.. they know about this food..

You living at Rathgama may have not heard or seen this..

How you have written it, I did not get it right.
Now පැනෑටියා, I got it.
Yes, I know this and it is in the sand.
Sad part is when the water is receding their location is revealed creating a fork in the water.
So, boys can easily dig the place and retrieve it.
Never eaten but I know some love this.

I have eaten them, not with rohs paang but with rice. Didn't enjoy as the cooking was on the beach with minimal input. Like prawns but harder.
Dried Matti (muscles) are delicious when cooked like a meat curry. When going to Wilpattu as a kid, our last stop was Puttalam market and Matti was on top of the list for us kids.

Have you guys eaten Kahata Aembula ?

A selfie video by a Singaporean visitor who came last year . By watching this, I think these 2 visitors didn't get the real Sri Lankan experience. The itinerary could have been more and more fascinating than this if properly planned. Our marketing people in tourism should show up more, to make them visit again.

As expected Chinese travelers are flooding to SL, Good promotional campaigns undertaken few years ago reaping benefits.

Early months of this year shows the trend. Sometimes China might takeover India as our number one market in this year itself . Slowing down Chinese economy is the only hindrance, otherwise this trend could turn in to a tourism Tsunami for us( A warmly welcomed one !)

Sorry just saw this....

It is the fruit of the Kahata tree. It has to be plucked as petals of the flower is falling with the fruit just forming and cooked the same day. It is cooked similar to the Ala Kola or Miyana Kola Ambuleh cooked in Kandyan and Sabaragamuwa areas, some make it with Umbalakadeh, with or without it is simply delicious and a oh so unique Srilankan taste. Rarely it is available at small family run buth kadays , One such Kaday where you can eat it during season (May-June) is on the Haputale road, at the bridge over Hirikatu Oya about a mile past Belihul Oya about 500 meters before the Samanalawewa turnoff. A bath in the clear water flowing right down from Horton plains is of course a must before lunch. You can get your feet exfoliated by swarms of nibbling fish. They also have homemade Kithulpiti most year round.
