52 week project – Sri Lankan Cookbook – recipes I did not have time to post

The last few weeks have been a bit of a blur with the last month of school and lots of random pot lucks announced at the last minute and little projects to be helping the school with. So due to the craziness I had no time to post recipes, I tried a couple but time has been minimal and chaotic!

Here is some Sri Lankan / Indian recipes and foods I have tried…

One of my first Vegetarian recipe books by Kurma Dasa – well loved!

The book and the salad

Lucky for me my daughter’s teacher had a 50th birthday party and celebrated in style with this amazing feast & I got to score some leftovers – in the picture are string hoppers, egg curry, coconut sambol & some ball cutlets (they had meat in them so my husband enjoyed them!)


A lovely treat of a Sri Lankan feast for dinner
The other meal I created was with my friends Recipe Sack of a Vegetable Pulav with fava beans from our garden and whatever vegetables I had on had – it was just delicious and makes a super easy meal for your first night out camping. We went to Sunset State Park for our second camp trip of the year and the beach was a special place to recharge your soul.

So my 52 week project has somewhat gone awry with the busy, crazy life that overtakes my projects – I think what I will have to do is post the recipes when I can as some of the Sri Lankan recipes can be so time consuming and too fried that I cannot create the energy to make them. I love fresh lightly stir fried food and salads so I plan to make Sri Lankan with a twist add the spices, ingredients to something I can create and see how that goes! The Sri Lankan food I grew up with was always a treat and it is probably best kept that way πŸ™‚
