WHB: Sri Lankan Beef Dinner

Gretchen Noelle

My love of food was cultivated early on by my family but has come alive while living in Peru. During the 12 years of living in Lima, Peru, I have also enjoyed numerous trips to other areas of the country. Here on Provecho Peru you will find Peruvian recipes in English, American favorites prepared overseas, news about Peruvian Cuisine and interesting tidbits about life in Peru.

    Interesting post! I wonder why there are two names. Is it simply domestic versus non-domestic? Your Beef Dinner looks and sounds delicious!! Lots of spices and coconut milk always gets me! Love it.

    Many Filipino dishes use turmeric paired with coconut milk. In a way, this Sri Lankan dish is similar to Filipino dishes. Thanks for sharing! We learn something new everyday! 🙂

    Hi Gretchen. Are you still in Peru? I am a Sri Lankan living in Peru now. I make a similar sort of curry but I would say we use a lot of chillie! We love chillie! Let me know and I will invite you over some time! Cheers!
