About Raj Pavilion presents Coasts of Colombo
Often referred to as the Pearl of the Indian Ocean, the spice island of Sri
Lanka has a lot to offer to the world besides its famed sweets, desserts
and exotic fruits. Although it is heavily influenced from Indian
(particularly South Indian), Indonesian and Dutch cuisines, the country
evidently also shares close ties to other neighbouring South and Southeast
Asian cuisines. With rice, coconut, and native tropical fruits and
vegetables forming the building blocks of a typical Sri Lankan meal, the
food in the island ranges from very mild to fiery hot and dominant and
powerful flavours, depending upon an individual’s preference.
As this gorgeous island of Rice and Curry makes liberal use of local
fruits, seafood and indigenous spices to create an abundance of incredible
dishes, it is natural for you to savour it long after the meal is over.
This month, let the Chefs at ITC Windsor take you through the land of the
Sinhalese, with traditional dishes like Ala Hodi or savory Potato curry
with a coconut broth, Sri Lankan Omlette Curry, Pol Roti or Sri Lankan
Classic Coconut flatbread, String Hoppers with Kari, Sri Lankan Kotthu,
Lamprais, Lunumiris, Wambata Moju or Pickled eggplant preparation, Bedapu
Maalu or Sri Lankan Fish Fry and Sri Lankan Prawn Devil curry, to name a
few. For the ones with a sweet tooth, they can indulge in desserts like
Wattalapam, Aasmi, Peni/Undu Walalu, Konda Kavum, etc.
Savour the cuisine of this tropical country and rediscover the joy of
rustic dining, only at Raj Pavilion.
