Interlude: Rasai Sri Lanka!
So. 9 days and 2 kg later. Here’s a blog post about food. Rasai means Delicious in Sinhalese =) I pinched the post title from a Sri Lankan food festival promotional ad.
Typical Sri lankan rice and curry meal. Spicy and bloody fantastic too.
This is how we wash our hands, with “tissue” made out of newspapers
Rotti. plain. with egg. or those triangular ones with vege.
Spiced chick peas. kacang puteh style
Breakfast buffer. made out of dhal. rotti, and string hoppers (extreme right flour like stringy things)
Kottu Rotti! It’s like prata with meat, minced into tiny slices over a chopping board.
Waday. and Samosa. Street eats.
Plain rotti, samosas behind the counter.
Hoppers. Plain and with egg.
Rice and curry spread
Tropical Sri Lankan fruits
Rice and Curry Hotels. Hotels here means restaurant.
Yoghurt. At 35 singapore cents for one, it’s a steal
Rice and curry set – with chicken curry!
Rice and curry. With fish!
Deviled chicken and deviled fish
Sri Lankan highland tea. and oh so English setting
Home cooked Sri Lankan meal
