Me and my friend took a cooking lesson with mona while in arugam bay and i must say it was one of the nicest things we did while being there. Mona is super friendly and fun. We had a really good time and the food came out amazing, one of the best curry we had in sri lanka and definetely the most delicious coconut sambol. Highly recommend! 🧚🏽‍♀️✨

This wasn’t your normal cooking class it’s a full on local experience as well. Mona is excellent cook she has tons of knowledge and goes into great depths in teaching and explaining recipes. Her class is a must do if you’re in Arugam bay I give it a ten out of ten.

Loved our evening cooking with Mona
Sep 2019 • Friends
This was one of the highlights our our time in Arugam Bay. Mona taught us loads including how to open coconuts to make fresh coconut milk, and how to make 2 curries from scratch. Which we sat down to eat at the end and they were both delicious! Mona was lovely and friendly and answered any questions we had about what we were doing

Mona was very easy to talk to, spoke very good English and gave good instructions. We cooked a egg plant curry, pumpkin curry and coconut sambol. All came out delicious! Mona kindly said we could get in touch when we are cooking it at home!

There were 10 of us that went for Mona’s cooking class and we had a really fun time! She taught us how to make sambal, pumpkin curry and a few other things. She organised it really well and we were all participating. Mona explained everything to us in a very calm and easy to understand manner. If you have a spare few hours, I highly recommend booking a session!

EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE
Sep 2019
We had a wonderful time learning to cook Sri Lankan food with Mona, we learnt to cook dahl, ladies fingers (aka okra) curry and coconut symbol. Even making the coconut milk for the curry and dahl from scratch!

Mona is an excellent cook, and is a really interesting person and easy to talk to making for a very enjoyable couple of hours. I would thoroughly recommend this experience.

We will definitely be cooking the recipes we learnt at home and will be sending pictures to Mona!

You can book this experience by contacting Mona on whatsapp on+94 (77) 022 8036. There were also some posters advertising her classes around Arugam bay.

Best food and local experience in Arugam Bay
Aug 2019
My boyfriend and I had a fantasic experience with Mona cooking a delicious carrot curry, dahl and sambal (with fresly made coconut milk!) ! The food was truly delicious and Mona is exceptionnal. She is a terrific teacher and keeps in touch with her clients via whatsapp for further tips to help you cook what you have learned when you get back home.

Mona started her cooking class a few years ago and is one of the very few women entrepreneurs in Arugam Bay. She is also a founding member of the first all women surf club in town helping sri lankan women to get some waves !

You can contact her on whatsapp to book a class: +94 (77) 022 8036
