Welcome to Buth Kuddeh

tastes of Sri Lanka


Buth Kuddeh, roughly meaning rice shop in Sinhala, a place where you can get a cheap, good, rice and curry meal in any Sri Lankan town. Think of this site as your virtual buth kuddeh. Feed your head and soul with recipes, info on ingredients, equipment for stocking the committed Sri Lankan kitchen, notes on the history of Sri Lankan cuisine and stories of my Sri Lankan foodlife.


Fish Pindun Curry

From the classic Sri Lankan Daily News Cookery Book. Chunks of fish dusted with turmeric, deep fried then finished off in a delicately flavoured gravy with roasted spices.
