That the bumbai muttai and nice i seriously dont know whats it called in other parts of the world and I’ve never seen it else where i went.

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.

First comes sri lankas very own kimbula buns. Oh we can eat 2 for breakfast it's so sweet but not very sweet

Ok let me take a break need something spicy so here is my lunch. It was sri lankan food. Super spicy chicken curry with rice and vegetables cooked in sri lankan style served with a salad. I just enjoyed every mouth.20141224_155653
One more item is yet to be introduced as a spicy dish my mother in laws special pol sambol. Yes it’s different i have seen my cousin make it with garlic and it tastes awesome but this tasted even special with dried fish blended and mixed to the ordinary pol sambol.

I know we get pineapple here but its a bit expensive and they sell it with chillie and sugar at dragin mart it's sri lankan style to have it with salt and chillie i just love the combo.

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 😉
