Its time for a round up of all the Sri Lankan recipes that I have made. I have been ogling at and drooling over countless recipes and I did end up making 7 different ones and have more lined up on my pinterest page that I hope to make soon! My virtual journey has made me even more determined to visit Sri Lanka some day. The cuisine just resonates with me so much because of the similarities between Kerala and Sri Lankan way of cooking. The liberal use of coconut and the abundance of seafood and spices! Gosh the recipes are so varied – There are simple salads like this carrot sambal that are made using fresh ingredients and serve as a side/ accompaniment to spicy rich dishes. Then there are stuffed breads, spicy chicken appetizers like spring rolls/cutlets and delicious curries using coconut milk. The desserts are amazing too and mostly use rice, cashew nuts and fruits.
So here I share the recipe of Carrot Sambal that I made ! I hope you enjoyed the journey as much as I did. 🙂
