Food in Sri Lanka

Sri Lankan food is quite similar to Indian, but has a flavour all its own. Considering the fact that one of Sri Lanka’s major agricultural products is pepper (along with a host of other spices), it isn’t surprising that most local cuisine is very fiery. Rice forms the staple diet, and is consumed in vast quantities, either boiled or steamed, or as different types of hoppers (a form of toddy fermented rice pancakes). Red, hot curries of fish, beef, poultry or vegetables are eaten along with the rice. Most coastal areas have some excellent seafood on offer. For afters, yoghurt and a spectacular range of fruits are available. Sri Lankan fruit is a fine example of the best the tropics can offer – rambutans, pineapples, mangoes, passionfruit and the ubiquitous coconuts.
