Fresh Turmeric Root in Sri Lanka

Sri Lankan food is extremely delicious, and one of the spices that’s a fundamental part of the cuisine is turmeric root.

I took this photo in an area near Pusselawa and the turmeric was picked by a local grandmother that proceeded to cook one of the best chicken curries I’ve ever tasted in my life!

    I’m going to Sri Lanka at the end of this month and really looking forward to the curry! Btw I just returned from Laos and oh my, they have some of the best dishes ever!

      Hey Bama, cool to hear you’ll be going to Sri Lanka – I think you’ll really enjoy – easily one of the most amazing countries I’ve visited. Have fun and eat a lot of Sri Lankan curry for me!

    This is a beautiful photo. I love it. I regularly cook Indian and this explains turmeric’s gorgeous color.
