TOP MORE THAN TEN SRI LANKAN FRUITS This blog post is going to be on fruit, one of my favourite topics. Even long before a brief period as a low fat raw vegan (i.e. fruitarian), I learnt to appreciate the beauty of fruit. This is the food that has it all: it is easily digested, good for your body and mind, super tasty and in a ...

Dinner Looks Like This Just felt the urge to cook dinner on a whim. Made dhal, green bean and chicken curries. Enjoyed both Hennessy and Baron Otard cognac while cooking. Dinner came out real well. Stuffed now. We used curry powders made specifically at home. Tomatoes and coriander leaves star prominently!

Capering at Cape Byron Lighthouse “You take so many photos, you get us to stand this way and that way, but we never gets to see them,” yelled my sister, all the way from Brisbane, the other day. The line crackled, and I mumbled about lost computers and hard disks crashing, which sounded lame even to my own ears. Most of the time, we ignore ...

Uitsmijter – Uniquely Dutch It is Friday lunchtime, nearly weekend! I fancy something filling to eat so I decide to have an Uitsmijter.

There are many variations (see below) but traditionally it involves:  Dutch brood (bread), kaas (cheese), ham (ham), and spiegelei (fried egg). It’s not only filling but damn tasty too ...

Lankan Food Combos; How Many Have You Tried? As Sri Lankan’s we’ve been subjected to some very interesting and possibly extremely daring food combinations. This is probably because it is in our nature to experiment with food so that there is a fusion of flavours that cater to all areas of our palette.

Pan Asian: Baigan Bharta (Smoky Roasted Eggplant in Tomato Puree) – India  Baigan Bharta is an iconic dish that you’ve, no doubt, enjoyed at your local Indian eatery. It basically translates to “Eggplant with minced vegetables,” which is a description that hardly does justice to this delicious preparation. Complex, in a smoky, sweet, spicy, savory kind of way, Baigan Bharta thrills the taste buds, and without any animal fat, healthy to boot. ...

Brushing Religion I wish people would interpret religion in a way where it would be bearable. What we have now is something that is an aggressive hybridization of something that was once pure. Gave up on fluoride. Letting the words ejaculate with my favorite aphrodisiac.
