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.


Christmas Cake

My grandmother Ada de la Harpe's recipe for Sri Lankan Cake has now stood the test of three generations. A cake whose ingredients are also the history of contact between Sri Lanka and the world. You can view Ada's cookery book at http://bit.ly/37KH8fC
