About Me

I am Anoma. I’m a housewife and working part time in my husband’s company, living in Sri Lanka. I love to cook. And needless to say, I love to eat. I don’t eat just to satisfy my hunger, I always want to eat food that is tasty, that will satisfy my taste buds.

After having children I always wanted to cook delicious food for them. So I used to try not only Sri Lankan, but other kinds of food as well. When my two children grew older they became my food tasters. All three members in my family are real foodies. So I am very happy to cook for them

So, now I would like to share all the knowledge I gathered and learned from my 27 years of my marriage life, from the many kinds of books I read of international recipes and of course, the traditional Sri Lankan recipes that we all love.

Hope you enjoy my recipes.

  1. Dear Anoma,
    Thanks for sharing your recipe. My name is Wyman. I am a researcher from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Currently, we’re working on a project about Sri Lankan culture in Hong Kong. One of the topics is food. We discussed the cooking of Mukunuwenna Mellum and Pol Sambol. One of my Sri Lankan friends recommends your blog to us. I am wondering if we can use your pictures in our exhibition writing. We would address your blog as the source of pictures in our exhibition. Your kind assistance is deeply appreciated.
    Best,
    Wyman

  11. Hi Anoma,

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH

  12. Hi Anoma Aunty,
    Thank you very much for sharing your culinary knowledge through these videos.I love the way you give all the tiny little details while you cook. I live in UK at present, I always going to Asian shops to buy things and cook as per your details in recipe. I really enjoy the culinary journey that you take us in sinhala because we rarely hear sinhala here(believe me it has therapeutic value) .I could not find ‘Dunthel’ here to make dunthel rice ,I’m determined to make it once I come back to Sri Lanka.May triple gem bless you , your family and all the people behind this massive effort).

    Thank you,
    Dilshari

  13. Hi Aunty Anoma,

    It’s really interesting to watch the way you explain about how to make food. It’s so impressive. Specially you are explaining them as a kind hearted person. I must say you are doing it a great example for others who just do
    It for publicity. Proud of you as a Sri Lanka.
    Good luck..

  14. Really enjoy your videos. I have made many dishes following your recipes and my favourite is your malu ambulthiyal. I live in Canada and your Canadian or western food recipes are amazing as you give a Sri Lankan touch to it. Wish you good luck!

  15. Aunty,
    Thank you so much for sharing your cooking videos on youtube.
    I wonder in the time to come the present sri lankan generation would be aware of what traditional food & recepies are.
    I would be very pleased if u let us know how to make ‘sarana’ & how to make ‘thampala’ too! (Could be in different ways)
    I did watch your dhal curry with spinach but i do not know how to make ‘saarana’ & ‘thamapala! Also let me know what’s the english word for ‘saarana’ & ‘thampala’
    Thank You
