One of the favorite foods in Sri Lanka.


Rice flour 250 Gram
Yeast 1/2 Teaspoon
Sugar 2 Teaspoon
Lukewarm water 50 Milliliter
Coconut milk 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs)
Whole egg 1
Salt 1 Teaspoon


Sift the flour.

Mix yeast, sugar and water in a small bowl. Leave 10 minutes until frothy.

After that put the rice flour into a large bowl. Add the yeast mixture and 3/4 cup coconut milk. Mix well. Now knead by hand for 10 minutes. The batter should be thick. Cover the batter and allow to rise for 1 hour. After that, add the remaining milk and egg. Mix well. Add salt. The batter will be like pancake batter.

Now heat a round-bottomed pan or wok on medium heat. When hot, rub the pan thoroughly with an oiled cloth.

Now pour a ladleful of batter into the pan and turn the pan so that the batter sticks to the sides of the pan. Cover with a lid and cook over medium heat. After 2 to 3 minutes, the edges will have become golden and the center soft and spongy.

Carefully loosen the edges using a flat wooden spoon or butter knife.

Serve with curry, jam or butter. Enjoy.
