Teavivre Review-Golden Monkey Black Tea

The name of this tea is bit funny. It is Golden Monkey Black Tea and from Teavivre. It was a day that I wanted to sip some black tea in a calm afternoon. So, it was a perfect time to try another tea sample sent from Teavivre. I always find it difficult to select a tea type when it comes to try a new tea type. Anyway, I decided and selected Golden Monkey Black Tea. Actually it was a perfect match for a calm afternoon. The taste of it was a mix taste of bit bitter and also mild for the first sip.

Bell Pepper Rice

Bell Pepper Rice

I cooked Bell Pepper rice few days ago and really like the taste. Actually, I’ve read about this Bell Pepper rice in different Food blogs time to time, but my thought was this can be another rice dish. I never thought Bell Pepper can add a different flavor to the rice.

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.
