Veganuary. The Lankan Way.
Sri Lankans are known for cooking nutritious vegetables without compromising flavour. The Island larder is full of unique and wonderful vegetables from familiar vegetables like Jackfruit to totally unfamiliar vegetable like Snake Gourd.
Some of these dishes sound whacky! but we promise these are nothing but wonderful naturally vegan food.
To celebrate Veganuary, we have introduced three new dishes from the heart of Sri Lanka. Ambula, Ambul Polos & Senni Sambol Puff along with our several existing vegan dishes.
Explore below some of the stories and legends of the Lankan way of getting your 5 a day!
EAT LIKE THE LANKAN FARMERS DO.
Ambula refers to the rice & curry eaten by rice farmers working in their fields. While the word ambula, literally meaning "sour" in the Sinhalese language, the meal that is served in the fields is a traditional meal that is wholesome and nutritious. This meal differs from one province to another. The ingredients used in Ambula is passed down from generation to generation, which helps farmers to maintain a healthy life.
Our version takes inspiration from the different vegan dishes that is featured in many of the provinces, focusing on brining the best secrets of healthy living of Sri Lankan farmers to you.
K+K Ambula Includes:
Red Raw Rice, Polo Ambula (Jakfruit Kari), Brinjal Moju, Beet Root Kari, Ala Thel Dala (Deviled Potatoes) and Senni Sambol.
Ambula is currently available to order from K+K @ Home NATIONWIDE service only. The vegetable are subject to change based on availability.
THE KING OF VEGAN FOOD. GREEN JACKFRUIT.
One of our favourite vegan dishes, Ambul Polos, brings back memories of the large Jackfruit trees🌳🌳🌳 in many of the backyard of village houses exploding with giant jackfruit!
Ambul Polos is a semi dry and flavorful dish, Green Jackfruit or some time known as Young Jackfruit cooked with coconut milk, mild spices & pot tamarind.
SENNI SAMBOL PUFF
FROM CHILDHOOD MEMORIES
A common snack found in all local shops and the mobile carts that go from street to street in the evenings selling short-eats.
Senni Sambol Puff has many variations, with some times boiled egg added to it. We have bought to the party the Original💪💪💪, puff pastry filled with sweet & tangy caramelised onions with a bit of heat and guess what, it is vegan too!
