Spices, a daily staple, can be found in all the food in Sri Lanka. Even tea and sweets are spiced. A good Sri Lankan rice and curry will have more than five or eight spices in all. The best place to buy spices is at the local markets, like Pettah or Kandy. If you’re in Galle Fort, then a visit to Aflal’s Spice Shop is a must. Don’t forget to grab some Ceylon cinnamon – it’s the best in the world.
