Sri Lankan Lunch

Traditional Sri Lankan lunch is a colorful spread; main course is samba rice/red raw/ red parboiled rice, served with colourful curries, such as yellow curry – Dhal, Red curry – thick meat or vegetable gravy, green curry – leafy vegetable stir fry called mallum / keerai varai, and another stir fried vegetable curry. Lunch will be served with delicate wafers called papadums, and salty fried mor milagai (yoghurt chilis). This meal tastes good as it looks!
