Guest Hosting Flavors of Sri Lanka Event

Hello Friends,

I welcome Flavors of Series event once again to my blog. I feel honored that I could host it 2nd time. Thanks Nayna for letting me. First time around was Flavors of Bengal. And, this time we are going international to India's neighboring country, Sri Lanka.

Source: Wikipedia
Sri Lanka is an island surrounded by the Indian Ocean, the Gulf of Mannar and the Palk Strait, and lies in the vicinity of India and the Maldives. It is part of South Asia.

The customary diet in Sri Lanka are rice and curry, pittu (mixture of fresh rice meal, lightly roasted and mixed with fresh grated coconut, then steamed in a bamboo mould), Kiribath (cooked in thick coconut cream for this unsweetened rice-pudding which is accompanied by a sharp chili relish called "lunumiris"), Roti (made from stoneground wholemeal flour, traditionally known as Atta flour), String hoppers (prepared by mixing rice flour with hot water and salt), wattalapam (rich pudding of Malay origin made of coconut milk, jaggery, cashew nuts, eggs, and various spices including cinnamon cloves and nutmeg), kottuhoppers ("appa"), etc.[267] Jackfruit may replace rice and curries at times. Traditional meals are usually served on plantain leaf.

Isn't that all fascinating and so tempting to try. Did you see how most of the food is gluten-free. Now, that you understand Sri Lankan Cuisine to an extent, all you need to do is cook a dish from Sri Lanka (Vegetarian only, no meat or seafood allowed, Eggs allowed only in baking) and send it my way before31st December 2011. This event will run from 1st Dec 2011- 31st Dec 2011.
