The Sri Lankan food scene is booming around the world, so one should expect to fully indulge in all the mouthwatering tastes that this country produces throughout its dishes. Sri Lanka does only technically have 18 miles of water separating itself from neighboring country India, so similar foods will be about. But make no mistake that you’ll be having “Indian cuisine. Think coconut, chill, turmeric, garlic and more. They make things like egg hoppers which are thin sliced pancakes made from rice flour, coconut milk and sugar cooked and shaped like a bowl with a fried egg inside. Or try dhal curry here as it’s a traditional recipe that includes all the goodies: curry leaves, onions, garlic, lentils, turmeric, chilli and coconut milk. It’s a staple in Sri Lanka and is cheap to make, healthy and quite filling.
