Exotic Tastes of Sri Lanka

 

by Suharshini Seneviratne

Reviews
This book makes traditional recipes seem so simple. It gradually builds your confidence to attempt such recipes as hoppers, pittu and string hoppers. I would recommend it as the first and last book. You are able to invent your own recipes once you get the flavour and smell which this books teaches you to acquire so wonderfully!

This book is a must have cookbook for those craving for traditional Sri Lankan food. For someone like myself who was intimidated by traditional cooking, this book has made it simple. It has numerous Sinhala and Tamil recipes that are well described in step-by-step process. This book contains sample menus (wonderful idea), explanations on spices, utensils and measurements, which are of great help for a novice.
Traditional thosai, pittu, idly, yellow rice, dhal curry (parippu), cabbage mallum, kale mallum, crunchy carrot salad, spicy chicken curry and vara (fish), are all included in my meal rotation (delicious recipes). There are many more recipes to try out...and I am getting there!!!!. :)
Read the recipe till the end before beginning to cook. There are hints and alternatives that may save you time.
A must have book.

Suharshini Sene Viratne's Exotic Tastes Of Sri Lanka presents exotic dishes ranging from Traditional Hoppers (coconut-infused crepes) to Ash Plaintain Curry and Mango Fantasy. It doesn't hold much in the way of pictures, but the easy recipes don't need much embellishment and the coverages are welcomed rarities in a cookbook genre which holds surprisingly little in either area.
