The island nation that is so close to home ,that feels like home but is yet so different , unique and beautiful…Sri Lanka ! Visiting a country where the people are so familiar and hospitable…makes for the perfect getaway…adding to that, is the charm of a culture very prevalent even today while simultaneously embracing modern thinking ! The mouthwatering food that is so similar to our own Indian cuisine and yet manages to surprise and excite the taste buds with it’s own special flavours and fragrances,keeps the visitor waiting to return to savour it again ! However number of times one visits this country,it still never ceases to amaze us by the sheer cleanliness , respect shown to visitors,the vibrant Tuk Tuks (my favourite!!!)
and unimaginable vistas….you can tell,I thoroughly enjoyed my trip and I bring with me ,some very simple recipes to share with you and help you put together an authentic SriLankan meal at home !
