Private Traditional Sri Lankan Cooking Class in Colombo

What to Expect
This is a unique opportunity to visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Your experience begins by meeting your host Bandu at his high-rise apartment. During your 2-hour hands-on authentic Sri Lankan cooking class, you will learn to make a couple of local vegetable dishes and a curry. Before you begin cooking, Bandu will show you how to make homemade roasted curry powder - a delicious blend of spices that used to make most Sri Lankan curries. After cooking, enjoy your meal over delightful conversation with this friendly local. Bandu always has a story to tell and is excited to share knowledge about Sri Lanka, its culture and cuisine! Listen to all his interesting stories while you share the meal you have just cooked together at his dining table. Chicken or fish curry, eggplant stir-fry, lentils, rice and gotu kola salad (a melange of a leafy green noted for its medicinal properties, minced shallots, lime juice and freshly grated coconut) are some of the authentic Sri Lankan dishes you might cook. You will end your meal with curd and treacle (a traditional dessert) or wattalappam (coconut custard pudding).
