Traditional Cooking Methods

Clay pot cooking

Clay pot cooking is a traditional method of cooking that has been used for centuries in Sri Lanka. It involves cooking food in a clay pot, which is made from natural clay that is found in the region. Clay pot cooking is believed to be a healthier way of cooking because it allows food to cook slowly and evenly, without the need for added fats or oils.

Firewood cooking

Firewood cooking is a traditional method of cooking in Sri Lanka that has been used for centuries. In many rural areas, families still use firewood as their primary cooking fuel due to limited access to modern energy sources such as electricity or gas.

Grinding and pounding

Pounding is a method of using a wooden or stone pestle to crush and flatten ingredients, such as grains or vegetables. This technique is used to make dishes like hoppers and string hoppers, which are popular Sri Lankan breakfast items. The rice flour dough for these dishes is pounded to a smooth consistency before being steamed or fried.


Coconut milk extraction

The coconut milk is typically used in curries, soups, and other dishes. It can also be used to make coconut cream, which is made by simmering thick coconut milk until it thickens and the oil separates.
