Cup by cup the coconut-sugar mixture is added to the flour and crushed peanuts, to create a thick yet stretchy dough. This is then moulded into a plate and left to set.
As Soma cut out the pieces of Sudu Aluwa, a mouthwatering tropical aroma engulfed the entire kitchen. We relished each bite, a mouthful of creamy coconut flavours with hints of peanut and a whole lot of sweetness.
When in Matara, or in fact anywhere around in Sri Lanka, if you encounter the delicious, melt- in-the-mouth Sudu Aluwa, you must definitely try it. We are sure that once you’ve tasted this treat, it will be difficult to resist the temptation to have more.
