Jaffna Cooking Experience

2 h
About this activity
Your guide will meet you at a preplanned location there at either 11:00 am (for a lunchtime class) or 4:30 pm and take you to the home.
You will be introduced to the family and get to see the traditional kitchen tools that they use. You will learn how to light the Jaffna-style mud and clay stove using firewood and dried wood flakes. Your cuisine for the day will be Jaffna style mutton curry using good quality local farm produced mutton, and Red Rice Flour Pittu - one of the staple foods of the region. You will learn to clean and cook the mutton with a variety of aromatic spices that take away the slightly gamey flavor that many people dislike.
When the food is cooked you will sit to meal of thick tasty mutton curry with freshly steamed cylinders of pittu. You will be eating on banana leaves with your hands - the traditional way. After enjoying a wonderful meal, your tour will be completed by approximately 1:00 pm or 6:30 pm, depending on your start time.
