Cooking class with a local family

In Galle you can learn how to cook Biriyani with the descendants of Muslim settlers. Biriyani is a dish that was brought to Sri Lanka many centuries ago by Arab merchants and is often served at Muslim family celebrations and festivities. A traditional Biryani comprises side dishes such as raita, cashew curry, Malay pickle, curried peas and meats and other spiced vegetables that accompany flavoured rice. Along with your host family you will pick, marinade and season the ingredients for your dishes and then you will all sit down and enjoy the fruits of your labours as a family.
