A city of vibrant culture, heritage & food, preciously preserved for generations in a world of its own.
Proudly perched at the top of our teardrop-shaped isle, Jaffna is closer to South India than it is to our own capital. Connected to the Sri Lankan mainland by a lagoon causeway, the Northern capital exhibits a dignified culture and traditional influences found nowhere else on the island.
Episode 5 of my web series features Jaffna and the surrounding areas. The highlight of this series is Jaffna food, the unique flavours of Jaffna cuisine. I will be showcasing some of the signature dishes of Jetwing Jaffna. Bawani is a local who makes these delicious Jaffna dishes here at Jetwing Jaffna. It was my pleasure & privilege to learn these amazing dishes from Bawani. Trust me guys the dishes were amazing and I truly enjoyed it.
Jaffna central market is another highlight in Jaffna, where you get to see fresh fruits and vegetables.
I will also be heading to Point Pedro.
Enjoy the true authentic hospitality here in Jaffna.

This dish is one of my childhood favourites, whilst growing up in Sri Lanka. “Nattu Kozhi Rasam” (Rustic Free-Range Chicken Soup).
This is an excellent Rasam broth you can make for your family. It’s an excellent way to clear your cold. It’s very comforting to drink when you are not keeping well and very easy to digest too.
This is an extremely simple recipe with some exceptional flavours.

Ayurveda originated in India more than 3,000 years ago.
Watch Episode 1 as I will learn to make an Ayurvedic meal and learn how food plays a big role in Ayurveda.

If you are a vegetarian, then this episode will feature some popular Sri Lankan fruit dishes. Or are you someone who would love to learn more about Sri Lankan History? Then you will enjoy the time at Sigiriya and the Golden Cave Temple tour.
I have had a great experience here at Jetwing Lake exploring their organic vegetable garden and the surroundings. It was great to see the ways of using fruits in making curries and salads, featuring what grows locally.
Jetwing Lake is surrounded by a tempting blend of history and nature; It is time for us to discover the magic of the regal heritage from fertile plains at the cultural heart of the Island “Dambulla”.
Upon these ancient lands of the cultural triangle, Sri Lankan hospitality has graced the likes of kings who ruled civilisations, fought battles, and sought refuge.
