Happy Eid to all those who celebrate! Today marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. I sincerely hope that the new year will usher in peace and happiness for everyone and reduce the suffering that we have been recently witnessing across the globe. Life is simple and let’s keep it simple. Live and let live.
Anyways, today’s post is a guest post from a co-blogger and a good friend Ahila. Ahila blogs at ‘ A taste of SriLankan cuisine‘ where she blogs authentic Sri Lankan recipes of her mom. When I had done my virtual tour of Sri Lanka earlier this year, I had asked Ahila if she could do a guest post. But she had been very busy with work and other engagements and so she was unable to do one at that time. But now she reached out to me when she finally had time to put a post together. So sweet of her! Literally, since the post is of a sweet traditional coconut pudding 🙂 It looks so good! Do check out her site, ‘ A taste of SriLankan cuisine‘ for more delicious recipes! So without much ado, here is Ahila’s post:
” Wattalapam is one of the most popular Sri Lankan desserts. Traditionally from the Malay cuisine of the country, it is basically a steamed pudding made out of coconut milk, eggs and jaggery.
During the past month, my mother has been experimenting with her different takes on wattalapam with her wattalapam cake and wattalapam jelly pudding. For Eid, I wanted to share my mother’s recipe for wattalapam as this will be a dessert sure to make an appearance in Muslim households across the country as well as in restaurants.
Eid Mubarak to all! “
