Thank you so much for stopping by. I am the cook, author and the not so terrible photographer behind rasakama.com. The word “rasakama” is a combination of two Sinhalese words “Rasa” meaning tasty and “Kama” meaning food. I am also a new mom to an adorable baby and to a very handsome toddler.
Frankly, I always had the love for cooking and baking. As a teenager, I baked many cakes from cupcakes to cheese cakes in my mom’s kitchen. Whenever we had a party, I was the one who always made the desserts and our guests loved it. During my early 20s, however, I did not have much time to cook. I was either busy reading a heavy book for my higher studies or I was busy being in love with this wonderful person. Little later, once I got married, I had the opportunity to visit Sri Lanka with my husband more often than before. There, we tasted so many different Sri Lankan dishes. In fact, I was amazed by the enormous diversity of Sri Lankan foods. Their unique flavors, colors, textures and tastes were remarkable.
In reality, when living thousands of+ miles away from Sri Lanka, we cannot find many vegetables that are avaiable in Sri Lanka. Nevertheless, I try to make dishes out of the vegetables that are available in Canadian food stores. Thankfully, I can find many ingredients we need to cook Sri Lankan food in Asian stores here.
I am so grateful to have a supportive husband without whom this blog is an impossible attempt to collect all my recipes.
If you have any questions regarding a recipe, please feel free to ask. I will definitely answer soon as I can.
