THE COCONUT TREE'S VEGGIE KOTTHU

Kotthu is a fine example of Sri Lankan hybrid food, and is served all over the country as luxury street food. It's made with finely chopped roti, cooked with egg, vegetables, and sometimes meat. 

Here is a simple recipe for our popular veggie kotthu, a sunshine-y bowl of TCT flavour!
