Potato curry from Sri Lanka (Ala Hodi kirata)

Potato curry from Sri Lanka (Ala Hodi kirata)
This is one of the easy Potato curry recipes from Sri Lanka. Also known as ‘Ala hodi kirata’ or ‘Ala Kiri Hodi’.I usually like to cook this mild spicy potato curry with string hoppers as it is a perfect combination. I use green chilies for this curry and avoid curry powder, therefore the curry looks yellowish and tastes milkfish. On the other way, due to adding pre boiled potatoes, the gravy is creamy and thick.

Spicy Curry Rice

Spicy Curry Rice

This is not that famous Singapore Curry Rice. Instead I came up with my own curried rice recipe when I wanted to cook one pot meal. These days my cooking is limited to few dishes. If you look for some spicy but still time saving rice recipe, try this. Sure, you’ll like. When I cook this rice, my home is filled with aroma of the spices. Not only that; the spices add flavours to the rice while turmeric gives an appealing look.

Pan Fried Pomfret Fish

Pan Fried Pomfret Fish
Pan fried fish
It is not a secret that most of us like to eat fried fish. Sometimes we don’t care the health benefits when it comes to the concern about the taste. A fried fish with crispy outside and flaky inside makes a mouthwatering dish for anyone. But how do you fry it keeping the maximum nutrient value? Select pan frying instead of deep frying. Always pan fried fish are better than deep fried fish.

Remember I shared my experience with a road trip in Sri Lanka? Now this is the part 2 of the post.
We started day two, early in the morning to avoid the crowd and the heat. Our plan was to visit Sri Maha Bodhi tree before the place is too crowded. Sri Maha Bodhiya is one of the sacred places to Buddhists and is situated in Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka.

Sri Lankan Carrot Curry /Mild Spicy

Sri Lankan Carrot Curry /Mild Spicy
Sri Lankan Carrot Curry /carrot kirata

Do you like carrot? Of course, I like. However, usually I like to include carrot in a salad. But sometimes, I cook it as a curry. So, today recipe is a Sri Lankan carrot curry (aka Carrot kirata). In this curry, I cooked carrot with thick coconut milk using green chili. Therefore, the curry has a vibrant orange colour, which I really like. This curry is not so spicy due to addition of green chili instead of red chili powder. The way of cooking is really easy and good to prepare if you are in a hurry.

Simple Sri Lankan Beetroot Curry

Sri Lankan Beetroot Curry

This is a simple and easy Beetroot curry from Sri Lanka.I cook beetroot in this method when I am in a hurry to cook. When it is cooked in thick coconut milk as a dry curry, it tastes much and well goes with plain rice. I really like to add the leaves of the beet to the curry. But most of the time I can’t find beetroots with the leaves.

How to create a Media Kit for your Blog and a Sample Media Kit

How to create a Media Kit for your Blog and a Sample Media Kit

If you are a PR friendly blogger, then a media kit is a must. Whenever a company or a PR agent contact, they will ask for statistics or some other data related with the blog. It is always possible to type and send back. But, it is not professional and on the other way, it is time consuming to type details for each email. Finally, don’t forget that a Media kit represents you and it is your brand!
