The foodie fanatics at HelloFresh are on a mission to change the way people eat—and they’ve been in Sri Lanka to find out why our delicious seafood is renowned the world over!
They have created a bunch of tasty recipes for the Sri Lankan Diaries, and writes Trisha: “If you’re hankering for a taste of Asia, then Sri Lanka is the perfect microcosm of cultures, climates, flavours and breathtaking scenery all wrapped into a package that’s a little more navigable than the vastness of its larger cousin, India.
“As you’d imagine a lot of my highlights so far have been based around the food! There’s loads more to share with you all, but I couldn’t wait to share my favourite sights, dishes and experiences from my first week.”
She particularly likes the Sri Lankan crab curry at the Aliya Hotel in Sigiriya, washed down “with their signature Arrack cocktail as you listen to the resident sitar player and that thigh burn will simply melt away”.
“If you really want to impress at that next dinner party then give this crab curry a whirl. The only tricky part is prepping the crab itself, but you can always ask your local fishmonger to do that for you.”
Next stop The Owl and The Pussycat in Galle, where, “under the watchful eye of Head Chef Anthony D’Costa they have samosas to die for, followed by a selection of curries from prawn to fish, aubergine, beetroot and my new obsession, Pol Sambol, a garnish of coconut shavings and chilli that takes any dish to the next level”.
Last but not least, hoppers, kottu roti and more at Jetwing Beach, Negombo. “After a long day of filming we headed over to check out their vast array of food options and never wanted to leave.”
