Sri Lankan Kottu Roti ~ Love Cake

Loading...
Kottu translates from Sinhalese as 'chopped', and this hugely popular Sri Lankan street food consists of chopped up roti (a type of flatbread), stir-fried with chicken, vegetables and egg. It’s typically cooked on a heated iron sheet using two blunt blades to mix and chop - a distinctive sound which can be heard everywhere in Sri Lanka! For dessert we’ve got a traditional dessert of Portuguese origin known as love cake flavoured with rose, cinnamon and cardamon. All the spices in this cake were regarded as powerful aphrodisiacs, including rose which is known as the ‘queen of love’!
