I am oddly tired today, dear readers, and so I am not actually writing up a recipe for traditional Sri Lankan New Year’s food: milk rice and lunamiris sambol, plus a nice salmon curry. Maybe I’ll come back tomorrow and post recipes, though if you google, you’ll find many that are basically identical — they are very simple, very traditional recipes.
I barely managed to cook this — only because Kevin was willing to chop onions and wash rice for me; it felt like too much to manage otherwise. (The salmon curry I already had on hand, thankfully.) It’s supposed to be lucky, and I feel like we’re in need of all the luck we can get.
I wish you a happy and healthy New Year, with plenty of rich and well-spiced food.
