Kottu is national food (dish) of Sri Lanka


Heat a pot that could hold all the ingredients, and when really hot ad the oil. Add Garlic and Onions. Next add the Carrots and Leeks (Do not let the vegetables overcook – taste better when crunchy). Then add the eggs and mix well. Next add the Soy sauce and Salt to taste. Add the Chicken and mix well. Next add the Roti and mix. If needed the Gravy (Sauce of the Chicken curry) can be added to this and mixed ELSE it can be added when eating.


One of Sri Lanka’s most typical dishes, and perhaps my favorite, is kottu. Combining rotti bread, veggies, a variety of spices and (optionally) egg, cheese or chicken, it’s one of the country’s few specialties in which rice plays no role. And the best part is, you don’t ever have to look for a restaurant which serves kottu … just listen.
