You might have experienced the best attractions in Arugam Bay, but there is nothing as rewarding as learning the culinary secrets of your travel destination. The Sri Lankan cooking classes with local women are a good way to get to know an interesting side of Sri Lankan culture. After reaching the arranged location, you will meet some ladies from the nearby villages of Panama or Urani who are wives of the farmers. After meeting them and chatting a bit, you will be shown the ingredients that are organic and free of pesticides or chemicals. You can help them get the ingredients ready; chopping garlic, cutting the vegetables, etc. The women will reveal their secrets and little tricks that give the oomph factor to the curries. You will learn how to mix different local spices like curry powder, turmeric powder, cumin, cardamom, etc. and their perfect proportions. You will even be showed how to get coconut milk, a crucial component of most Sri Lankan curries, from scraped coconut. Dishes like the world-famous Dhal curry, the mouthwatering condiment coconut sambol or ‘pol’ sambol, Ladies finger curry and the filling coconut rotti which is flatbread made of flour and scraped coconut will be covered. There is a saying that the best memories are spent in the kitchen, which this tour will prove. Once you have prepared all the curries, sit down for dinner with your curries and some local hospitality.
