My sisters homemade kimbula buns. Of course they look a bit thin like my sister but taste the exact same as the bakery buns. I got her recipe and need to try it soon.

Pilawoos a normal restaurant in Colombo is very famous for its cheese koththu. They are famous for koththus actually.  You can see vehicles lined up on the road to eat pr takeaway koththu at anytime till they close. These koththus are to die for and you should eat it with those spicy gravy thats served in a tiny bag.

Colored Stringhopper Biriyani a feast In Lankan Style

a long awaited short post.

we make string hopper buriyani in sri lanka for most of our dinners and even here in Dubai I find it easier to make a string hopper buriyani than rice buriyani as it’s easy and tasty.

i just cook the chicken following the instructions like a normal hydrabadi buriyani and later mix the string hoppers.
to color the string hoppers use any prefered food coloring and mix with milk.
break the stringhoppers into 4 and pour the colored milk over. mix to incorporate and layer with the chicken curry. warm over a low heat and serve.
