    The picture that comes to my mind when I think about Srilanka are the beautiful locales. Be it the hill station Nuwara Illiya or the beaches at Galle and Bentota. They are beautiful and every traveler would want to visit this country often just like me. Recently I had the opportunity to visit this country again with Balaji who organizes tours and I often travel with his organised tours. On this Srilankan tour we had the opportunity to taste the local food. While we tasted the array of vegetarian dishes, we seemed to like the dessert which was Naran kavum.

    Narun Kavum

    Naran Kavum

    Naran Kavum is a sweet dish which mainly had coconut, sugar and rice flour as ingredients. It very much resembles our sukiyan in appearance and taste. We generally use jaggery as the sweetener in sukhiyan but lankan use sugar for sweetening. The procedure is nearly the same. Will be documenting my other food experience and of course about beautiful Srilanka shortly in my travel blog

    The theme for this week of Blogging marathon is to pick an alphabet and cook from three countries whose name starts with that alphabet and I chose to cook with the alphabet S. So Srilanka is the first country. Do come back to see the other cuisine for the next two days

    Sounds like a delicious dessert Veena. I have eaten something similar but the filling was like our ‘pooranam’ – coconut and jaggery. Waiting for the other recipes from Srilanka.

    Wow! You visited Srilanka? Now I am looking forward to your post. This sweet looks awesome Veena. Coconut is one of my fav ingredients to work with. The deep frying takes it to another level..

    May be the younger sister of Suzhiyan, how delicious its looks na.. Srilanka is in my country to visit list, wish i could visit this beautiful island very soon. Btw Naran kavum sounds like a dangerously addictive dessert.
