A Traditional, Vegetarian Sri Lankan Cooking Class in the Heart of Colombo

3 h
About this activity
Join Nalinka and her cook Kusum for a cooking class in their open style kitchen. Since Kusum does not speak any English Nalinka does a great job of explaining the ingredients, spices used and cooking process. During your 1-hour hands-on cooking class you will learn to knead the dough for the string hoppers and try your hand at using the noodle press to press out the dough in circles. Then while the string hoppers cook, cut the ingredients for the potato and tomato curry, coconut sambol or mallum and learn to cook them. Your cooking lesson will last about an hour before you join your host at her dining table to enjoy the meal Sri Lankan style, using your hands!

Your meal might either be a "string hopper meal" that includes dishes such as string hoppers, potato curry, tomato curry and coconut sambol or a "rice and curry meal" that includes dishes such as rice, dhal (lentils cooked in coconut milk) and three seasonal vegetable curries. You will end your meal with yoghurt, fresh fruit and Sri Lankan coffee or tea.
