The Sri Lankan Kitchen

Duration: 3 hoursType: In-PersonPrice: $140

Due to its strategic location along the Spice Route, Sri Lanka became a major trading center and melting pot of culturally diverse peoples and cuisine. In this class Vindi Rathnayake will guide us through traditional Sri Lankan spice blends and working with fresh coconut to make a variety of classic dishes. On the menu: kukulu mas curry (chicken curry with coconut, and tamarind); parippu (red lentils with curry leaves and coconut); ela batu (Thai eggplant curry with dried anchovies and jackfruit seeds); kola mallum (sauteed kale with freshly grated coconut, mustard seed, and dried chilies); karawila sambola (fried bitter melon sambal with shallots, chilies, and lime), and steamed basmati rice.
