Spices from Sri Lanka?
- zuriga1 Mar 9, 2008 07:22 AM
A Sri Lankan friend of mine wants to send me a gift and suggested some of their spices or other cooking ingredients. I have no idea what to ask for aside from perhaps curry.
Any ideas? Anything else that would be neat to receive from Sri Lanka? TIA
Sri Lanka produces many spices ("curry" is really a mix or blend of ground spices) -- you could ask for whole cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, nutmeg, just to name a few that the island is well-known for. Or you could ask for some pre-mixed curry powders or curry pastes. Or you could ask for some loose-leaf tea from Sri Lanka.
