A dish you don't wanna miss when you travel to Sri Lanka

Kottu Roti, one of the popular, spicy dishes, that you don't wanna miss when you travel to Sri Lanka.  It is very popular among the young although many middle-aged people love the food.  Kottu Roti is made out of a food similar to "tortilla".  Cut tortilla pieces mixed with any kind of meat, vegetables, eggs, cheese, and a lot of spices put together construct this spicy food.  The amazing thing about Kottu Roti is the way you prepare the food.  Typically, the food is prepared on a heated iron plate, and mixed (or cut) using two other iron blades.  When mixing the food, the two small iron blades hit the heated iron plate and makes a distinct noise.  Usually, people do the mixing to a certain beat which creates a unique atmosphere.

So, next time when you travel to Sri Lanka make sure to follow the unique noise, if you wanna taste some Kottu.

For people in LA, there are a few places in the San Fernando Valley where you can taste Kottu Roti.  I usually taste kottu once a month.  You might pay about $8-10, but for me, the pleasure and the taste is more important than the money.
