I had told you that the Sri Lankan Cuisine is delicious here. So to bring the Sri Lankan “#BuffetonTable ” you need the  Curry Powder that is deliciously multipurpose.

The aroma is so yum that you just cannot resist adding it to all kinds of foods, from curries to daal to stir fries. I could not…

A strong blend of flavours that is quite similar to our garam masala and roasting brings out all the yummy flavours and colours.

This is one keeper of a recipe. Do see all the delicious and yum the yummiest of Pumpkin Vegetables, Lentil Curry with Lulu Miris and Seeni Sambol I had made. The recipe I have used is from here.
