Words can never just explain how my vacation in sri lanka was for my fellow readers. So i made sure to click some
To the next stage:
Did i mention i came down for my brother in laws wedding? Yes i did. So weddings means buckets and trays of sweets. It all pours in to the wedding house from somewhere. In sri Lanka friends and relatives take a dish and make it to bring for the wedding house. That sweet is served for the visitors and the house members. So extra sugar is 100% guaranteed if you are going to a wedding house or living in a wedding house.
So let me introduce you to the sweets section.
Back to colombo cos thats where the wedding took place.
at cinnamon grand for an ice cream amidst heavy showers. yes it was a rainy night 🙂 i tried this apple ice cream and panettone which sound a bit weird but tasted fine 🙂
a spread for the visitors which we also ate in colombo. the olden days have when dosi, dodol, paniyaram and murukku was served in small bowls and placed in large sahans. the brownies and cupcakes have taken over the place but there are still towns like negombo and other parts of colombo which go by tradition. i wish i can show you a picture of that soon till then this is how the wedding house looked 🙂
the sri lankan traditional appa the best part was they had an appa party with a person doing at home. it was soo nice to see the appa being made at home and served hot. the egg hoppers and the chicken curry was a hit. this appa stand was my favourite of the entire trip. i was so eagerly waiting with my camera until the appa making began. i am gonna master this very soon in sha allah 🙂
dodol yes this is made by one of the aunts. its tasty and oily but trust me it worth it. it’s a traditional sweet made in sri lanka and i dono the origin but sure it’s sri lankan.
my cooking a very simple dinner homemade pasta, tuna devil, milk gravy with egg and pol samol served with stringhoppers.
I GUESS FOR TODAY THIS IS ENOUGH.
i will post the remaining soon till then have a great weekend 😉
