Ugly Deliciousness Made a batter with cocoa, sugar, milk, and an egg. Dumped some bananas into it. Fried it in coconut oil, and dumped it all on sliced butter cake. Ugly sight, but heaven in a bowl.

I’m about as omnivore as can be, perhaps leaning towards a more carnivore-ish evolution of humanity: I don’t quite trust anything green on my plate, and I hold that most vegetables (like beans and carrots) are poisonous in large quantities, and should be exchanged for chicken where possible. Seriously, the only thing you can reliably trust is a potato. I ...

The Ultimate Travellers Checklist: For Hot, Humid Climates Less than two months left for Christmas… yikes! This is an excellent time to start preparing for a holiday. A lot of Sri Lankans like to travel to places such as Malaysia, India, Singapore, Indonesia, Maldives and Thailand, partly because the flights are reasonably priced.  Sometimes, we need a little help in packing. With that in mind, here is our ...

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. It is a Dutch dish similar to the German Strammer Max, but transformed with Dutch ingredients. 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 ...

Salad This salad was so good. It had: bacon, olive oil, baby corn, parsley, onion, tomato, olives, mushrooms, coconut oil, and beetroot.

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. Plain Tea and Jaggery Picture Courtesy: http://www.apolloclinicthane.com/blog/-/blogs/is-jaggery-a-safer-substitute-for-sugar- Speak to any Sri Lankan and you will ...

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. ...
