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!

  • Coconut Oil
  • Finely Sliced Red Onion
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Mixed Chilli Flakes
  • Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 Free Range Eggs
  • 150g Sliced Roti
  • 25g Thinly Sliced Carrot
  • 25g Thinly Sliced Leek


  1. Heat a wok until hot. Add the coconut oil and swirl the wok until it covers the base.
  2. Add the onion, salt, chillies, black pepper, and eggs.
  3. Toss and cook until the egg has slightly scrambled, then add the roti, carrot and leeks.
  4. Toss the pan rapidly on high heat for several minutes, until the vegetables are cooked but still crisp.
  5. Remove from the heat and serve immediately.

    I like veg food but not to a point to eat anything veg. I once tried a strange salad from but had to puke everything. It tasted so strange and had the strangest effects on my body.
