#kithulpeni

MOST RECENT

It’s #AvuruduWeek and I started making things for my Avurudu Mesaya starting yesterday.
I’m going to be making one sweetmeat, kevili or food everyday this week so that I have enough to feed a village by Saturday!
So, on Monday, I made #WeliThalapa, a traditional #sweetmeat made out of grated #coconut, #kithulpeni or #treacle, #riceflour, #cardamomseeds, #brownsugar and salt.
If you know how to make #pittu, this is a breeze. If not, well you’ll have to spend a little time learning how to get the right consistency for steamed pittu which isn’t all that hard - combine that (crumbled by hand) with #caramalizedsugar, #cardamom and treacle -heated until softball or one thread consistency- and lay the mixture out on a square tray lined with parchment and let cool.
Cut into squares (hopefully snap a quick pic before someone in the family gulps one down - or post a photo on IG with one piece missing) and you have yourself a deliciously #sweet #kevili named so for it’s wet-sand like texture 😋

Caution ⚠️ Road works. In addition to the many vehicles on Sri Lankan roads are cattle 🐂and buffalo 🐃roaming aimlessly through the often gridlocked traffic and maybe paying the local bank a visit like these guys here. It's a great reminder that nature persists - and might even prevail.

🇱🇰🇱🇰🇱🇰Curd is a traditional yoghurt-type dish made from buffalo milk that is usually served with treacle - also known as kitul peni/kitul pani. #becomingsrilankan #srilanka #buffalo #kithulpeni #cows #curd #traffic #colombo #lka #ceylon #kitulpani #kitulpeni

It was after quite sometime that I cooked #kahabath at home and served it on a #bananaleaf. With the baby little things become time consuming errands and you tend to forget how special a meal of #srilankan #riceandcurry could be.
I also packed some for a special mama to be 👆🏽and was thrilled that she enjoyed it!
The #rice infused with cardamoms and raisins was served with spicy #bakedchicken #brinjalmoju #dhallcurry, #embarella #curry, #maldivefish #badum and a boiled-fried #egg 🍛

Everyone has been asking for my baked #chicken recipe on the @pinkpoppypetal feed so here goes: For the #marinade, make a wet paste of herbs and spices by grinding together #garlic #ginger #curryleaf #roastedcurrypowder and red #chillipowder. Combing this with a generous dash of #soy, #kithulpeni and some #tomatosauce. Rub the spice mix on chicken thighs and legs (I buy #organicchicken so it doesn’t include skin, but you can bake the chicken with skin if you use regular broiler chicken) using your hands. Let it sit for half an hour and bake until the meat is soft and juicy, and the marinade has slightly charred 😋
Brush with some virgin coconut oil once out of the oven (if the chicken is baked without the fat of the skin).

To everyone who won’t believe me when I say we’re going to go broke feeding @uktheislander, consider this plate of food on a random night, like yesterday👆🏽
EXHIBIT A: #lamb #shoulderchop with #roastedpotatoes topped with #dill infused #sourcream and a #farmegg. All polished off in 15 minutes 🥩🍳🥔

On a different note, I marinated the #lambchop for 6 hours under-refrigeration before grilling it while searing the meat. For the #marinade, make a wet paste of herbs and spices by grinding together #garlic #ginger #curryleaf #roastedcurrypowder #blackpepper and #coconutvinegar. Combing this with a generous dash of #soy, #kithulpeni or #treacle and some #tomatosauce. Rub the spice mix on the #chop using your hands. Don’t be shy, make sure you get every corner. Let sit for 6 hours and grill.

A few days ago I made this #breakfastbowl and my husband and I both loved it :
#PoachedPlums with #sagoporridge cooked in #coconutmilk #cardamoms #kithulpeni and a sprinkling of toasted #sesameseeds ❤️
#breakfast #srilanka #sago #sesame

Ahalya loves #sagopearls cooked in #coconutmilk for #breakfast. So I invariable find myself having #sago in the mornings too!
This is my usual warm sago #porridge with #kithulpeni, crushed #cardamoms, dried #raisins and chopped #almonds (instead of the cashew). So so good 😋

Saturday #brunch is a thing. Don't believe me? Then what's this warm, buttery #frenchtoast with a sticky #orange #blueberry and #treacle #glaze doing sitting in front of me 😏
So glad I made this today 😋

It was raining and a little cold outside but I still tested my luck with some #buffalocurd and #Kithulpeni today. I hope I don't regret this tomorrow 😶🤞🏽

Okay, so my friends have their own way of eating these #cheesy #nachos dressed in a tangy #tomato relish from @cocoveranda. They get themselves some cutlery and crush them into a crunchy pulp, mixing everything together. And then, they devour a whole plate full of nachos in literally 5 minutes. And maybe they'd order some #pear and #orange #icedtea with #kithulpeni to go with it. What do you think? Will you ever have your nachos the same way?

Tonight's dessert was a #kithulpeni and #cashewnutbrittle #creamcaramel. So so good!
